    Default 76th Infantry Regiment Breast Badge

    Good day

    I believe this to be a breast badge for the 76th Infantry. Am I correct and is it the real thing? The chain that has been attached to the front is a bit of a puzzle. It is clearly a later addition and you can see the solder - I wonder why?

    Many thanks

    Hi James,

    Correct, the 76th “Lidzki” Infantry Regiment. Similar to the 55th Infantry Regiment badge, the broken chains are symbolic of Poland being freed from its restraints during the 123 years of partition between Prussia, the Austrian Empire, and the Russian Empire.

    The badge you’ve pictured is a modern copy.

    Regards,
    Tony
