Product Information
Specification
Belgium: Palms for the Occupation of Rhineland. 
Veteran's unofficial award for the members of the Belgian Occupational 
Forces of Rhineland after the end of the 2 World Wars (WW1 and WW2).
Besides the Palms there also exist  2 other unoffical awards (Crosses) 
for the occupation of Rhineland. The Palms however is the one most 
rarely seen.
The Allied occupation of the Rhineland took place following the armistice 
that ended WW1 in 1918. The occupying armies consisted of American, 
Belgian, British and French forces. 
The Belgian Army of Occupation consisted of 5 Divisions stationed in 
Krefeld (Headquarters at Aachen).
Following the end of WW2, Germany was divided by the Allied Forces,
into several occupational zones (4 Major zones and 3 Minor zones). 
The Belgian zone was formed as a corridor from the Belgian-German 
border to the edge of the Soviet zone, and it included the important town 
of Cologne. 
The Belgian army of occupation, the Belgian Forces in Germany 
(FBA-BSD), was formed by soldiers of the former Free Belgian forces,
it was commanded initially by General Jean-Baptiste Piron and remained 
under British command until 1946 - acting autonomusly ever since.
