Belgian Beret "Korps Burger Bescherming - Corps Protection Civil"
At the end of 1945, the PLB and other known air protection services were transformed into
N.H.K.-C.N.S. = Nationaal Hulp Korps - Corps National de Secours =
National Aid Corps - Corps National de Secours and in 1951 again transformed into
K.B.B.- C.P.C. = Korps Burger Bescherming - Corps Protection Civil =
Civil Protection Corps - Civil Protection Corps.
These stamps are also in the berets and other things that were made for this service.
Moto: Impavidum ferient ruinae =
part of 'Si fractus illabatur orbis impavidum ferient ruinae' and means: 'Should the world break and fall about him, its ruins will strike him unafraid'.
I also have a helmet of this Civil Defense organisation see:
