Default Eagle badge

I believe it is a post WWII Italian, Alpine division, Medical staff hat badge.

Hope this gives you a place to start.

Ian

Correct,
Post WWII Alpine medical corps soldiers badge. Medical Officers (Doctors, Pharmacists, etc.) had different badges.

These were made of plastic and sewn to the Alpine cap. Plastic badges were common in Italy from the 1950's to 1970's
