My father was sailing as a merchant seaman for the Curacaosche Scheepvaart Maatschappij / CSM from 1942 to 1947 and now I am looking for information I would like to know in what year they delivered OORLOGSDIENST KOOPVAARDIJ 1940-1945 if there is any documentation available photographs if you can help me
My grandfather was buried in Curacao until transferred in 1947 to the National Cemetery in Puerto Rico. What would have happened to the grave marker after he was transferred? Thank you for your time.
His name is Jose Valentinus Lourens
Yesterday, the 16th of April 2019 my father who was a 'schutter' died at the age of 96 years. He may have been the last living 'schutter' who defended his island during second World War.
I'm currently writing an article for the Ñapa, the cultural supplement of The Amigoe newspaper, about the cultural influence and changes WWII brought about in Aruba.
I am very surprised to see my fathers name . Marius Ludwig LONT
I lived with my parents at Curacao in the 1960s. Written an article about Dutch Antilles in WW II; see URL page: https://www.ipms.nl/180-artikelen/nedmil/2540-antillen-ww2-english
Dear Jos, thanks for the new entry on your website on the Voluntary Military Corps of the Netherlands Antilles.
My grandfather was George Owen Kunkle and I believe you have the wrong picture of him. He is to the left of the gentleman you have posted in the baseball game photograph. I have a scanned picture of him in uniform if you would like me to send it. Best regards
