Peter,

O.V. stands for Oorlogs Vrijwilliger which litterally translates into War Volunteer, so he was a volunteer soldier (not conscripted).
You are correct as the snd class is concerned, 2e klasse in Dutch

Transmissietroepen mean Communication forces.
The Belgian batallion of "Transmissietroepen" could also be called signalforces, it consisted out of (radio)telegraphists and other communication related ranks.

If you have more questions you can also mail me direct.
