France (2015) 100th Anniversary Belgian exile Government

FR_stephane_Gouvernement-BelgeStéphanes sent me FDC commemorating the Belgian Exile governement during WWI.

According the Wikipedia, during World War I, Sainte-Adresse was the administrative capital of Belgium. The Belgian government in exile was installed from October 1914 to November 1918 in the Dufayel building, named after the businessman who had built it in 1911. It had at its disposal a post office using Belgian postage stamps.

Thank you very much for very interesting cover!
