Hungarian Security

I thought I'd start a thread dealing with Hungarian security forces- Police, Security Forces and Border Guard. If anyone has any items that fit, please post them!

Here's a Police service cap badge. Note the weapons below the star; if they were not there, this badge would be for the AVH and/or Border Guard.

Re: Hungarian Security

This next badge, the Korzeti Megbizott, literally indicates jurisdiction over a district, but in reality the jurisdiction is over, say, five streets in a city environment or a few small villages in a rural area.

Re: Hungarian Security

This next badge is for a graduate of the Tiszti Police (Rendor) Academy. Sorry about the lighting, but the harsh light allows the banner to be read. As you can see from the shield, this is from the Kadar period. You can also see a downfall of these badges... they lose enamel fairly easily when dropped from any height.

Re: Hungarian Security

A couple more items and I'm going to call it a night. Here are two police academy/school badges that break with the "diamond" shape. Both have opposing tab backs. The gold coloured badge is designated "BM Kun Bela Zaszlos-Kepzo Iscola" (the Interior Ministry school for NCO's and Warrant Officers), and the silver coloured badge is designated "BM Tiszthelvetieskepzo Iscola" (the Interior Ministry school for NCO's).

Re: Hungarian Security

Outstanding set. The Hungarians really did an excellent job with badges.:thumbsup Of course having never seen most of these I am still in the awed phase. However, I do have a border guard badge like the one you posted, but since the only thing on the screw nut is "PV" I am assuming it is Hungarian made (since those are also the initials of the words for "border guard" - at least in Russian).

Thank you Greg for the post of the diamond police academy badge. I have one of those as well and did not know that it was for the police academy. Do you mind posting a picture of the reverse? These seem to have a strange attaching mechanism and a very short, pointed screw post. Also, mine has a blue field in th background of the "rays" spanning down from the star. I'll post a picture tomorrow.

The last thing I want to mention tonight is the volunteer policing badges - I really need to find someone who has some for sale. I will eventually start a thread of "Druzhinnik" badges because I've been collecting them (and documents) for some years now and I've found a few interesting ones - but nothing from Hungary.:)
