    Can anyone add any more detail for our friend?

    I would GUESS that the shoulder strap insignia represents 6th Cavalry Regt?

    I have no idea on the breast badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I don't know very much (read: practically nothing ) about Belgian uniforms and insignia, but my curiosity was piqued, so I googled around a bit and came up with a few answers (and even a photograph of a uniform very much like this one in wear).

    • The breast badge with the rings and swords is a Belgian military sports badge.
    • The sleeve patch with the lion's head is for the 1st Independent Belgian Brigade.
    • The white collar patch with the black upper border as well as the shoulder strap device with the crossed lances identify Lancers (Lanciers).
