- Maasniel - Knokploeg -

      A. Reulen and J.P.H. Frencken already had a distinguished career as resisters when they were asked to participate in the Knokploeg Roermond (Roermond Command Group) in December 1943. They transferred their area of operations to North Holland in January 1944. (Cammaert VII.II.2. De knokploegen van Helden en Roermond, pp. 767-768)
      Report of the Higher SS and Police Leader ‘Nordwest’: “The Police Summary Court has sentenced the following Dutchmen to death: Factory worker Albert Reulen from Roermond and welder Jacobus Frenken from Maasniel. The convicts have participated as members of a terrorist group in the armed robberies of the town hall in Haelen on February 13, 1944, the town hall in Venhuizen on March 18, 1944, and the town hall in Heiloo on May 12, 1944. Food coupons, money, forms for identity cards and other things were stolen in quite large numbers. During the raid on the town hall in Venhuizen, one of the perpetrators shot the resisting police officer down. Thus, the convicts are guilty of participation in a clandestine organization, continued sabotage and unauthorized possession of firearms.”
