Who or what is this?

Sorry, no closeups of the medals or belt buckle or helmet plate. He looks almost like a French fire department chief to me, but not quite. That helmet! I'm guessing that's a chestful of Great War medals, so I think he's a citizen of a belligerent nation.

Belgian policeman at first guess. Possibly Gent or Brussels.

The star on the collars appears to be some form of rank insignia perhaps and given my interest in that field I am also going to go with Sean and guess he is a Belgian policeman or possibly a Dutch policeman.

Not Dutch but Belgian (note the medals).
