The vantori were not mountain troops.
Btw, there were no mountain troop regiments, just battalions.

As far as I remember the mountain horn was the traditional insignia of the Vânători de munte (were they not the mountain troops?). According to the photos in the links below, the mountain horn was still present on the uniforms of the Vânători de munte during WWII, so it is quite likely that it was used as insignia in the 1930s.

Then this was the badge of a battalion, not a regiment?

Vanatori - Translates as Hunter or Sharpshooter. It was a term used for the Infantry Rifle Regiments. The insignia is the hunting horn.
Vanatori de Munte - Is a term for the Mountain Rifle units. These were formed as battalions and were trained for mountain combat and had excellant skiing abilities. Some of these regimental badges are found with skiis on them. The insignia for the Vanatori de Munte is the hunting horn with a pine branch cluster.

The vanatori were the elite of the infantry during the 19th century and early 20th century. However, after WWI, any differences between them and the regular infantry were erased and only the name remained, as military tradition.

The vanatori de munte were the mountain troops created during WWI and expanded later into a different army section, with different organization.

The mountain troops insignia also includes, IIRC, the Queen's Flower (also known as the Corner Flower under Communism)

A distinction must be made between the 8th Infantry Regiment (Regimentul 8 infanterie) which belonged to the 5th Infantry Division and the 8th VanatoriRegiment which belonged to the 8th Infantry Division.

CIG Engineers - Commadant Inspector General of the Engineers. Has the sunburst rays often found in Generals insignia. I do not think that too many of these badges were ever made.
