For the first time, the Belgian team played an international match. It ended in a narrow but honourable defeat against a very strong Dutch team. The match was played in hotel Scheers, starting at 15:30. I have found half the games scattered around Belgian newspapers and Mr. de Haas found one more in [5], but four are still missing. The picture below comes from [1].
