French RÉQUISITIONS MILITAIRE armband with a great look to it. Plate with this wording being sewn onto khaki armband along with two strips of tress indicating rank. The reverse shows a three prong metal buckle. Gentle age wear and some staining that is minor and does little to detract from the overall look. I believe this would be worn by Quartermaster department personnel or other uniformed personnel as a badge to indicate the appropriate clearance and authority to requisition goods or service. The construction looks consistent with later 19th century use. Good looking affordable piece to add to a French display or collection.
