Response to SS Schouten?


.......the following would seem to be a loose translation for 7 Dec 41.

".....claimed by the KM and put into service as an air protection ship for Surabaya (stationed / picket at the Gili's)".

However in the next line, i.e. 28th Feb, it seems to state she is in the Madoera Strait (and seems to imply that the Gili's are in that Strait also), whereas the only Gili's I am aware of are a few small islands just off the north west tip of Lombok above the Lombok Strait. Or are there other Gili's in Madoera Strait?

Must say, can't see what protection she would be for Surabaya over at the Lombok Gili's.

Be interested to see what some of our Dutch friends have to say (and how close I was in my 'translation'. wink.gif )
