    The lion's head sign is the Brigade Piron insigna. Don't know what the letters stand for , it can be anything; city's , associations...
    The second picture is a commemorative plaque of the death of King Albert I. Who fell (pushed!?) from a rock at Marche -les-dames, training camp of the para-commando's these days.

    They could be right. Brigade Piron was formed in Britain, and helped to free Belgium.
    The secret army used the same insigna.
