|Became||Légion Belge, eventually Armée Secrète|
|Opponents||German Occupying Forces|
The Revived Belgian Army (French language: Armée Belge Reconstituée) or ABR was an early group of the Belgian resistance against German occupation during the World War II. In July 1941 the organization became part of the Légion Belge.
The organization was originally founded by Reserve-Colonel BEM Robert Lentz with the aim of reuniting former members of the (now defeated) Belgian Army to continue military opposition to the Germans. The organization was also planned to act as a gendarmerie force to maintain stability in the event of the expulsion of the German forces from the country by the allies.
