The Belgian Parade

Insignia

Hey all,

As I’ve had a pretty busy schedule, and the 21st of July was nearly two weeks ago, I am a bit late with uploading these. However, I still think they are worth being added to the page as they provide some great references for modern armour builders!

Hope you enjoy!
