    Default French Lapel Pins - Airborne Unit? – ‘Bon Pour Le Filles’

    Hello all,

    Has anyone seen these before?

    I have been sent these badges from a relative in France. They didn’t know much about them.
    The French translates to ‘Good’ and ‘Good for Girls’. ‘1950’ a date? The larger badge has an Airborne insignia. I can’t seem to find much info on the internet. Some people call them ‘conscript’ badges.
    I am going to guess they may be related to some type of formal-wear bling for dinners, balls etc.

    Hi christek,

    A beautiful trio of lapel pins. They definitely piqued my interest, so much so that I engaged in an internet search about them. From what I discovered the pins were given to conscripts upon graduating/passing out; hence the year in your photo. There seem to be two different "categories" so to speak:
    *Bon les pour Service (Good for Service)
    *Bon les pour Filles (Good for Girls). I think this one roughly translates to "Fit for marriage" ???

    The early examples I found also had small photographic portraits attached as well.

    Yours look in great condition compared to the ones I saw online. Perhaps you've encouraged me to expand my collection beyond the usual sharp and dangerous items I'm usually drawn to

    Thanks for sharing these! Hope you can find out more about them.
