The Netherlands beret "Korps Inlichtingen & Veiligheid Prinses Alexia"
The Korps Inlichtingen & Veiligheid Prinses Alexia (Intelligence & Security Corps Princess Alexia) is a corps within the Royal Netherlands Army that specializes in the gathering and processing of intelligence. The corps, together with the Korps Communicatie & Engagement Prinses Ariane (Corps of Communication and Engagement Princess Ariane), constitutes the Arm of Information Manoeuver and was established on 20 November 2020.
The first formalized intelligence unit of the Dutch army dates back to 1914 with the establishment of the General Staff Section III (GS III). In fact, this unit is the forerunner of all modern Dutch intelligence organizations. The history of the Intelligence and Security Corps goes back to 1954, to the founding of 101 Military Intelligence Service Company (101 MIDcie). This unit is the immediate precursor of which the Corps is now continuing the tradition. The establishment of the corps and the associated tradition system provides the intelligence personnel with a recognizable, unified identity. The naming of the corps after Princess Alexia also perpetuates the link between the army and the royal family.
