Historical Background:
Soon after the liberation of Brussels, the 1st Belge Infantry Brigade, called Piron Brigade, was engaged in the Limburg campaign to liberate Leopoldsburg and a political prisoners camp. Piron Brigade, composed with armoured cars and mounted infantry (the "Winklers") fought mainly in Leopoldsburg and Oostham against German defensive positions and some assault guns. The Brigade succeeded in its mission and freed the prisoners. After this battle, Piron Brigade continued to clear the Limburg area and then participated to the Liberation of Netherlands until the end of the war in Europe.
