Default Badge of the 4th Tirailleurs Tunisiens Regiment

Recently found in a box of spare and odd badges: a cap badge of the 4e Régiment de Tirallieurs Tunisiens. Made by Drago, Paris-Nice, I am not sure what 25 R. Béranger III é stands for, though....

Location of shop :

Drago:
  • Drago 25 R. Beranger Paris Depose (III)- often late 1930s
  • Drago Depose / Drago Paris Nice (Depose) - a bit more flexible - wartime to early postwar
  • Drago 43 R. Olivier Metra - immediate postwar (colonial) - late 1940s/Indochina
  • Drago 3. R. de Romainville Paris - Primarily 1950s
  • Drago Paris - most common and longest running marking - generally used from 1955

Thank you so much! So I am glad this badge could have been worn by a veteran of the Italian Campaign (Battle of Belvedere)
