HMS van Speyk, december 1953
The Schunck-Cremers couple with their four youngest children.
The gunboat Van Speyck also visited the port of Bonaire now and then. Always a party for us boys. Because we were gun freaks? Not at all. The cook invited us to his galley, where we each got a huge piece (at least we thought so) of Dutch cheese.
Only now, after so many years, I have to read that this ship was on the wrong side in the war. Seized by the Jerries.
Nu pas, na zoveel jaren, moet ik lezen, dat dit schip in de oorlog fout was. In beslag genomen door de moffen.
