Response to Mysterious automatic cannon
the canon is a oerlikon 30 mm. it was mounted on the RP boats (Higgins photo of the bow and a HDML with the sailor).
it were old vessels from the australian navy. handover to the dutch in about the year 1947.
the main station was at Tanjong Priok in the Riau archipel, just below Singapore.
the contoled the aria for smuggeling weapons etc.
