Hello Katrina , Jacques and Jan, and Geoffrey,

This is my first post. I too am a KPM "baby". My father joined the KPM in 1939 and sailed during the war mostly on the Straat Malakka, but also the Tasman, Treub, Boissevain, Tegelberg and others.

I am very proud to say that my father has just been recognised for this service by the Ministerie van Defensie. Whilst I believe there should also be recognition by Australia for all KPM crews I recommend that if you have not already gained Dutch recognition for your father you can do so now. I am happy to help point you in the right direction.

Cheers
Piet
