Between June 1 1940 and May 8 1945, 521 Belgian officers served as pilot or navigator in the Royal Air Force (RAF) and 128 were killed. Overall, 1,200 Belgians served in the RAF during the course of the Second World War. Many were also trained in the South African Air Force SAAF, and consequently took part in the operations in Africa. These composition pilots were produced by Belgian toy soldier companies : NB, Durso and Solido in 40s/50s. The soldier with a radio station was produced by Leyla for the Arnold Jeep.
