Welcome to the website of the Belgians who fought in the Korean War, for us it was "the forgotten war", to you, visitor, it is hopefully a memory for keeps.
The Battalion was engaged in all offensive as well as defensive
operations in a very difficult and very broken terrain, in a very
unfavorable climate, under a broiling sun, and dusty summer, very severe
winters, twenty four hours rainfall, and the ever present mud from the
3171 Belgians and 78 Luxembourgers left for Korea.
The Belgian-Luxembourg battalion, including
several South-Korean soldiers, suffered the following losses: 101
Belgians, 2 Luxembourgers and 9 Korean soldiers killed in action.5 Belgians listed as missing and 478 wounded in action.
