    Member Kris can proably help but he appears to be in a Belgian army uniform, perhaps WWI or maybe interwars or the start of WWII, I do not have much knowledge on their army, but I doubt they changed much between the two periods. The red collar facing is either for infantry I think. As I said Kris will be the best to help you.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    It looks like a Belgian ww2 era uniform. Maybe commissionned officer, they got to wear the sam brown belt and wore the gloves. Nice picture. Rue Royale 33 is in brussels.

    Kind regards, Onno.

    So he was an officer then? Are u sure about that?
    Could u gues what rank he could had have?
    and i found some info on the internet, they used this kind of uniforms from the late 1800's-1914 or 1918
    but i cant find its an officer or not, there are no websites who are specialised in these uniforms
