Miniature black enamel cross pattée on laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the gilt lion rampant of Belgium within yellow and red enamel concentric rings; the reverse plain; diameter 12.11mm (0.48 inch); on probably original ribbon. After the end of World War II, Belgian forces formed part of the Army of Occupation of Germany. Subsequently, after Federal Germany became independent, the army remained on German soil as part of NATO forces during the Cold War with various changes of task, size and equipment over the years. In 1995, following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the army was retasked and became part of the Intervention (Rapid Response) Force, based in Belgium at Saive, near Liège. A good older miniature.
