The Binnenlandse Strijdkrachten (BS) were established by the Dutch government in London in September 1944. All the armed resistance groups operating in the Netherlands were combined to make this single military organization. These groups included the Ordedienst (OD), the National Assault Teams (LKP) and the Resistance Council (RVV). The BS was under the command of Prince Bernhard.
[Forces of the Interior] All the armed resistance groups operating in the occupied Netherlands joined forces in this organization in the final phase of the occupation.
