[1] gives the match table and [3] gives some games. [2] and [4] give one more game each. As far as I know, this is the last international encounter for Devos. Surprisingly, the Belgian top boards more or less held their own against the much stronger Dutch team. On both sides, some strong players were missing: Donner and Euwe in the Dutch team and O’Kelly, Soultanbeieff, and Bussers in the Belgian team.
