Response to Re: Floating for days

 

I'll leave the discussion about the currents to the experts...happy.gif

As to the reports, yes, there must be 3 or 4 reports/statements dealing with this incident:

- Meijer's in 1945 in Japan;
- KLTZ/Commander Moerman 's report after the war that supposedly includes info obtained directly from Meijer during captivity in Makassar;
- two apparently anonymous Chinese sailors from the Augustina, debriefed by unspecified authorities.

There may of course have been other persons in captivity (of any nationality) that may have heard the story from Meijer himself...or through KLTZ Moerman...

So I would not yet rule out anything.

UPDATE: apparently Meijer made a statement in Sep 45 to the war crimes commision in Manila, as qutoed in Jungle Journal:
