Recommended Posts

​Can anyone ID this aiguillette? fourragere?

 

Looks like an Aide-de-Camp. I had pieces of one of similar construction.

 

I didn't know where to post this topic.

This is an aiguilette that is missing one of the ferrules. I have a similar one (although I am not at home to compare it in detail) with the two matching pieces with hook ends for attachment instead of being a single piece. Mine dates from just before WWI.

Thanks for the info, but what country? If it's not US, then PM me with the details.

Very weird configuration with those matching clamps/brackets or what ever they are, trying to see how they would be attached to the shoulder. would you know, also would this be U.S. Navy?
