During WWII, Belgium was occupied by Nazi Germany from May 1940 to February 1945. After the war, Belgium was one of the founding members of NATO [1]. In 1948, it was also one of the first countries with a clandestine Stay-Behind Organisation (SBO), in cooperation with the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) (now: MI6) and the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Although Belgian Special Forces (SF) and Stay-Behind Organisations (SBO) mainly used foreign equipment – sometimes built under licence – there are also nationally developed and produced devices.
