  • Vale all those lost on 27 Feb. 1942

    Today is the 79th anniversary of the Battle of the Java Sea, but I am sure you will read little about that in the 'current' news. The Forgotten Fleet it remains.
    RIP all those lost this day aboard Hr. Ms. Kortenaer, HMS Electra, HMS Jupiter and Hr. Ms.'s Java and De Ruyter.

    Below a recent painting of De Ruyter fighting that afternoon and two of the last known photos of Java and De Ruyter.

    And today the 79th anniversary of HMS's Exeter and Encounter and USS Pope's sinking (and 'last' night USS Houston and HMAS Perth). RIP those lost.
