Hi
I believe it's a 1920/30s shoulder board insignia.
WW1 would have been embroided.
I initially thought lapel badge but bolt fitting to rear leans me to that conclusion .

Not sure about WW1 , found an example from the 1940's.

Drago items had different makers marks based on location/date.

Quote:
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
.
