I am curious about any additional details of the fates of these vessels in their escapes from the NEI cauldron.

I believe TEGELBERG got away from Batavia around the end of January/ beginning of February (1942, of course) and made it safely to Durban, South Africa (?)

TOBA appears to have left Tjilatjap in the February 27th exodus, and lagging behind a 14-vessel convoy escorted by VALK, succeeded eventually in reaching Colombo, then Bombay (?)

SOEDOE (along with MINJAK TANAH?) departed Dobo, New Guinea around Feb 13/14 and escaped to Australia, although I do not know which port they reached

Any details TIA,
