    Great items David!

    I like to read about the FFL but have no items

    I have about 200 issues of 'Kepi Blanc' magazine from the 1980's

    Be careful : FFL = Forces Française Libres also...Free French Forces.

    Thanks for the comments, i bought one Legion badge last summer and from there my collection just kept growing. I think French Foreign Legion badges are still relatively an unknown area to alot of collectors so i think this post should be interesting to old and new readers alike. If anyone has photos please feel free to post them up as well.

    No, here in France I know that many people are looking for these badges.
    You have some made in factories by Drago....
    And the others made on the field, very rare, and they are looking for these local badges like fools!
