    A nice lot and I imagine a few are named.

    Is it easy researching Belgians? Something that can be done online? I might need to have a go at Belgian WWI research in the not too distant future.

    Thanks.

    Only the big coins bear a name. They were given for a personal jubilee.

    Researching Belgians is quite hard, yes!

    For WWI there is a good tool called "the Golden book of the fire card", but your guy must be holder of de" carte du feu/ vuurkaart".
    It means he must have spend time at the front line.
    The book can be found here; Guldenboek der vuurkaart

    Yes I have a book but can't remember which, will have to dig it out to actually check it. With a bit of luck it'll be your lawyer

    No not a chance, there are only soldiers in that book and the lawyer only started his career in 1949. Maybe he's father...!?
