Response to Re: M. S. Bloemfontein


Thanks Peter,
Your website information is very helpful.I found it interesting that up to 1943, around 50% of U.S.troops were transported by Dutch vessels - Is my understanding correct?
The convoy information, although incomplete shows that the Bloemfontein certainly got around - from Pearl Harbour shortly before the war to Java,the Solomons,the Philipines,the Marianas and even Iwo Jima before ending the war back in Pearl harbour on VJ Day.
The wartime picture show the Bloemfontein's forward armament.
Any idea on how she would have been armed?
