A hunting horn emblem with the mouth-piece on the left. The block number and letter “3L” are displayed inside the flaming bomb’s horn loop; two fastening prongs with holes are attached on the reverse side. The author believes that this object identifies the Third Light Regiment, the company of Granaderos and was attached to a cartridge box flap.
