Response to Re: ML-KNIL PILOT Jan Dekeling
Sorry I missed your earlier message. I have mentioned many of the operational flights of Jan Dekeling, a Brewster 339 fighter pilot, in my books The Loss of Java (NUS Press, Singapore, 2011) and Aircraft of the Netherlands East Indies Army Air Corps in crisis and war times, February 1937-June 1942 (Batavian Lion International, Amsterdam-Berlin 2016). You can find short operational histories of the units he flew in these books too.
According to my data he was not evacuated to Australia but became a POW in Java.
