A small grouping to a Belgian NCO in active service in independent Congo

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Probably not of a great interest to the most but definitely rare; the ID to a Belgian NCO and his wife, working as a instructor/ technical expert, for the new army in the independent Congo of the seventies.
No uniforms or badges, but a lot of paperwork and pic's.
Anyway glad to ad to my "(Belgian!)Congo" theme.

Here is a small selection of the house clearing.

Thank you.

No trace of any medal he would have earned...

The only guy with medals is probably his father or father in law...
