Default Unknown badge on belt buckle

Hello All

A friend of a friend has been trying to identify the badge on a brass belt buckle.
It has two small sectionalised bullets on the side and two anchors in the background so I am assuming it is navy.

I am at a loss, does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks Dennis

Looks like it should be possible to read the wording on the strap? If not, black light should do the trick, or applying some ink or thin paint may make it possible to read it.

Hi Dennis

The wording reads "Je Maintiendrai" and the badge appears to be that of the Netherlands Marine Corps (Korps Mariniers):

Hope this helps

From the Dutch maritime website & translated by google:

A metal corps emblem is pinned on the hat or on the open uniform coat, the coat is also known as the barathea. It is the Marine Corps emblem. The emblem is used by the Marine Corps and more specifically at the Marine Brigade. The emblem in this form is also referred to as the "Tor".
dimensions height 3 cm
width 2.5 cm

start date 1943
end date 1948
