Day 295 - Name that emblem
Originally uploaded by Drhaggis.
I picked up this pin on eBay for a steampunk costume because it looks cool, and the symbology is not readily recognized. Then I thought I should probably know what the pin meant before I starting wearing it.
The left hand side has a coloured enamel bandage wrapped skull, while the right side is an embossed profile of a living man. The bottom has a torch and the letters "EMRB". The pin was made in France, and the auction was French, so I'm presuming that the organization that used this pin was also French.
I have googled the letters "EMRB" and "ERMB" and nothing meaningful has come up.
The question to you is: What is this? What does it represent.?
