INTERNATIONAL MILITARY PILGRIMAGE - LOURDES 

[Army Main]  

While these badges are not actual military they are associated with and worn by personnel attending the International Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes.  The first Pilgrimage was 1958 and a badge exists for each year since.  Generally a badge is produced for each year but some designs are carried over into subsequent years.  The badges are French made.
The four images of the 1958 badge are shown at the bottom of the page.
