    This here is an interesting list, if anyone wondered what it would cost to loose a piece of your uniform.

    Its from a 'fiche dévacuation d'habillement'.
    If my basic understanding of French serves me right, it is a card listing the issued clothing.  
    The card is most likely from the late 1960s - early 1970s. That would correspond with the date on the uniform and other personal papers it came with.

    In 1971 the exchange rate between USD and Belgian Francs were $1 - 49 fr.
    In 1975 the exchange rate between USD and Belgian Francs were  $1 - 35 fr.

    $1 in 1970 is worth $6,71 as of 2021.
    $1 in 1975 is worth $5,02 as of 2021.

    Thanks for sharing this. I have a couple of similar examples from different time frames. One such list came from a friend who was a Belgian soldier about 1980, along with each of the items on the list. He told me that these were the items that conscripts were supposed to keep with them at home after their service was completed. I assume that this was in case of an emergency call-up, the men would already have their basic kit on hand.

    Thanks - that makes a lot of sense.
    It came with a woollen battledress, paybook etc. - all belonging to the same man.

    Probably the same deal then. The paper that came with the stuff from 1980 says that items must not be sold, traded, altered, or otherwise disposed of...
