The Sinking of Abbekerk and other war memories (Dutch)

In het blad “KW wij praaien U” heeft in 1995 een artikel gestaan over de Abbekerk. Abbekerk’s 3de stuurman, J. Visser, vertelt over zijn belevenissen in de oorlog.

    After Abbekerk leaves Port Of Spain on August 15, 1942, the 3de mate writes they encountered a lifeboat of a Norwegian ship. The survivors – with Trinidad in sight – refused to come aboard and sailed on (in retrospect a very sensible decision).
    I tried to find out which Norwegian ship this could have been and the most likely candidate is de D/S Bill:

    The lifeboat reached Trinidad that same day.
