Belgian armed forces in Great Britain



In this article a picture has been painted of the Belgian troops that continued the battle on the side of the allied forces after the capitulation on 28 May 1940. The most well-known unit of these troops probably was Brigade Piron, but next to them a lot more Belgians were participating in the fighting: in the RAF, in the Navy and even in the SAS and commando troops. The spotlight will be directed at each of these units.
