    it's letter write by Du Welz.
    Du Welz was the secretary of Degrelle

    the letter is send to Mss Lisein from Huy

    the letter says :

    the legionary Georges and Franck are come back with a mission, and they had a lot of messages from their comrades.
    One of them is worry about his familly because he didn't have news since augutus.
    He ask also news from Mss Bousnane-Pirlot ( who lives ) 16 rue Bettonval Wanze lez Huy. If she doesn't live anymore at this adress, contact Sir Dumont - 51 chaussée de Tiirlemont à Antheit -, he maybe can gives informations. You can also contact the rexist office from Huy or Ciney ...

    A few further inexpensive but highly symbolic Solidarność (Solidarity) movement protest badges:

    Above: St. Barbara was the patron saint of the Polish Underground during WWII so was also chosen as symbolic of the resistance by Solidarity against the Polish communist regime.

    Above: a symbolic reference of the Solidarity movement to the Polish anticommunist Poznan rising of 1956. Under the Polish communist regime it was often illegal to discuss openly such events in Polish history in a period when all typewriters had to be registered and numbered by the Polish communist authorities and owning an unregistered typewriter or duplicator was a criminal act against the state for which prison sentences were imposed.

    Above: In support of "Element Antysocjalistyczny" SOLIDARNOŚĆ a student activist group.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    Thank you Taka, the Solidarity movement produced a huge variety of these civil protest badges which people wore at some personal risk of reprisals by the communist authorities, until the movement became an unstoppable tide that swept the communists out of power.

    So that would be the Revolution of 1989, is that correct?
