Air Force Bronze and Silver Pin


Explanation:
I assume this is from Quebec, where "agrafe" can mean "broche"=pin. Agrafe does not have any meaning referring to medals or decorations in (continental) French, as far as I know.


    Looked it up in the Univerrsal Francophone Dictionary on line

Bronze and Silver Airforce Pin


Explanation:
The literal translation for agrafe is clip, but in the Airforce I believe they use "pin" instead.
