French Foreign Legion Badge?

Can anyone ID this badge?  It was found on a German tropical "hate" belt along with two Italian stars.  My friend got the belt and I got the badges.  It is hammered from a French coin.

Re: French Foreign Legion Badge?

Hello:

That badge belongs to the 8th regiment of "tiralleurs Tunisiens" wich goes for tunisien fusiliers it was not a unit that belonged to the french foreign legion but was completely made of tunisien soldiers with french officers, French army before de D day was largely composed of colonial troops or republican spaniards that fled after the war in Spain.
Here you have another example

Sajer,

Thank you for the reply.  I saw that you are also new to the site so welcome from another new member.

I am going to post the items I have so that others can see them and we can all learn from them.

Thank you.
