Response to Dutch Perception Of Admiral Helfrich
If you want to know what Col. Laurens van der Post (intel off to Adm. Patterson on HMS Cumberland and later military attaché to the British consulate in Batavia) thought about VADM Helfrich, his book "The Admiral's Baby"(1996) will be interesting reading for you. To make a long story short, he hoped that Helfrich would be sacked as soon as possible. Of course his opinion was very coloured, he accused the Dutch of wanting to go back to colonize the Dutch East Indies, while the Brits themselves did exactly the same in their socalled empire!
