Response to In Memoriam Feb 3/4, 1942 & a question
>>>>Question: I have read that DERUYTER was near-missed in the attacks and suffered unspecified damage, but apart from a vague reference to some kind of problem with her Bofors AA battery, I don't know much about it. Do we have info on that?>>>>
Don, I sent your question to one of the authors of the De Ruyter book (H Legemaate) and below was the answer I got.
Hr. Ms. De Ruyter got four near-misses, one disregulating the air-defence-control. It was repaired in short time.
