Response to Former Belgian Warships


Zinnia was civilian-manned for fishery protection, to be replaced by Artevelde, and the two ex-torpedo boats were at the nautical schools they were named after.

The Belgian Corps du Marine/Het Marinekorps was only authorized on an emergency basis to be formed on September 15, to fulfill Belgium's responsibility to defend her neutrality by naval means, under international law (Ireland did the same thing with her Marine Service).
