Jewish Chaplain

Can someone confirm that this is a Belgium Jewish Chaplain badge.

From research I have managed to do via Google, the design is same but finish is not. According to what I have found the badge should be a silver colour but the one I have is Gilt.

Did Belgium chaplains also use gilt badges and is this a cap or a collar badge?

Found three photo/illustrations that do not show a silver coloured badge.


Catholic chaplains were provided with white embroidered insignia,
but as there were very few protestant and jewish chaplains, they started to wear metal insignia.
This site shows an unfinished metal collar badge.

Militarybadgecollection only shows front of badge.

This page shows illustration of Belgian Chaplain badges.
