05. The homecoming and the immediate post-war period.

 

In September 1945, after having integrated the volunteers recruited at the time of the liberation of Belgium, the Belgian Commando Unit gets back home and joins

MARCHE-LES-DAMES.

At that time, the Regiment comprises:

an instruction centre (Citadel of Namur) ;

a Commando training centre (Marche-les-Dames) ;

  and later, a troop in Seilles.

 

As from 1950, the Commando Regiment is in charge of the training; initially for the Belgian Battalion of volunteers for KOREA, then for the reinforcements which will be sent there later on (Camp of Wartet).
