WW2 Portrait of Historically Important Belgian Officer. Large format (approx. 7 x 10 inches) of Belgian officer Baron Henri Moreau de Melen wearing the camouflaged Dennison smock and brown Belgian beret with the rampant Belgian lion above the left eye as worn by the Belgian Army in Korea. The man has been positively identified by Belgian and French SAS expert Eric Queen. Moreau de Melen served in the Belgian Army in WW2, eventually rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and served as Second in Command of the battalion which Belgium sent to Korea (the Belgian United Nations Command or BUNC). The BUNC fought in many major battles in Korea, including the critical Battle of the Imjin River. Moreau de Melen commanded the unit in battle after the commanding officer, Albert Crahay, was wounded at the Battle of the Imjin River by a Chinese phosphorus shell. Moreau de Melen saved the life of a British officer during the battle. He later served as the Minister of Defense of Belgium.
