    If the unit existed for only a short while, why are the tunics in the 2 photos greatly different? The tunics in the group photo shown with 3 rows of buttons, but the single portrait has only 2 rows?

    Hi, it looks to me like he was perhaps a cadet, possibly that is the reason for the difference in the button rows on uniform. The fellow in the first photo looks very young.

    Belgian uniforms had always been a mishmashe, and for police forces and firefighters even more!
    The two row buttons are the oldest uniforms and theyr owners probably continued using them during the transition periode.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
