The best way to reach me is via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests as it may take some time to catalog and photograph all my insignia and other items.
Please be specific re Legion insignia.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Do not add any attachments to your e-mail as they will not be opened.
Do not hesitate to contact me for rare insignia which may not be listed. I do have available some very rare Legion badges.
Updates now include better, detailed photos. Please contact me for additional pics of any items. Note: photos are not to scale.
The main reference book I use is “Le Grande Livre des Insignes de la Legion Etrangere,” 1991, by Tibor Szecsko (thus the SZ reference). This was published in limited quantities by the Legion and is perhaps the best reference book for badges up to that time.
Also you may use Philippe Bartlett’s “Badges of the French Foreign Legion 1923-1989.”
