Here you find a handfull of links to websites that were very usefull researching Abbekerks’ history.
Since websites and links on the internet tend to change often and using a searchengines (i.e. Google, Yahoo etc) today will come up with usefull links very easily, I stopped maintaining a long list of links. But the next links are invaluable researching (merchant) ships in WWII:
- Uboat.net This site has tons of information, not only on U-boats, but also on merchants ships and allied warships
- Convoyweb All information on convoys and the ships formed them.
- Naval history day by day follow everyday’s movement of ships during WWII
- De Nederlandse Koopvaardij 1940/46* Information on Dutch merchant ship during WWII
- Royal Netherlands Navy Warships WOII Information on Dutch warships during WWII
And some forums:
- Pacific War 1941-1945 Discussion on the war in the Pacific in general with a focus on the fall of The Dutch East Indies
- Warsailors Forum Merchant navy during the war in general, Norwegian fleet in particular
- MercantileMarine Forum* merchant navy during the war and the sailors in particular. very capable and helpful moderators. This forum unfortunately is not working anymore. I do hope it will come back)
