    It is necessary for an identification of photos.

        Hello Alex,

        Your first two pictures show "K-XI" and "Jacob van Heemskerck" arriving at Riga on 1.7.1925.
        Leaving Riga at 5.7.1925.
        The third pictures shows "Hertog Hendrik" arriving at Riga on 12.7.1934. Leaving again on 16.7.1934.
        The fourth picture shows "Hertog Hendrik", "O 10" and "O 11" during their visit 21.7.1927-26.7.1927.
        The fifth picture shows "Hertog Hendrik", "K-XVII", "Z 5" and "Evertsen" during their visit 12.7.1934-16.7.1934.

        Nice pictures, really. Thank you.

          Hi all.

          Seiner - many thanks for the information.
          Two more photos - again Riga.

          1. K XVIII and one more submarine on the right on a background. When?

          The dog in the right corner of a photo, apparently, is not so happy with visit.

          2. O 9 and O 10. When?

            Hello Alex,
            Thanks again for the beautiful pictures.

            This first one shows K-XVIII arriving at Riga 12.7.1934. Leaving again on 16.7.1934.
            On the right K-XVII can be seen nearing to moor, probably alongside the K-XVIII.

            The second picture shows O-9 and O-10 during their visit to Riga from
            28.5.1936 till 2.6.1936.

            Regards,
            Rob H.

                Hello Alex,

                Another nice picture. Thank you.

                1. "Z 3" and "Z 4" are not destroyers but torpedoboats.
                2. Place is Riga. Date 1.7.1925 - 5.7.1925.
                3. In the background you can see, from right to left, the Dutch coastal defence ship "Jacob van Heemskerck"
                and the battleship (very optimistically so called in Jane's Fighting Ships) "Marten Harpertszoon Tromp".
                4. In the middle of the picture it shows the "Virsaitis" (gunboat) which accompanied the Dutch ships from the
                sea into Riga.

                Regards,
                Rob H.

                  Hellow Alex:

                  Those are wonderful photographs. If you would like to e-mail them to me, I would gladly restore them for you and send them back to you. I love old photographs, but some much of the time they are discolored and are in decline.

                    Hello Rob.
                    Thank you.

                    Two more questions.
                    1. The Dutch warships participated in celebrating the 10 anniversary of the Latvian fleet in July 1931 (Liepaja/Libava)?

                    2. Whether there is no at you an information on visiting Riga by the Danish warships? In particular coastal defence ship "Niels Juel" and torpedoboats.

                    Best regards

                    Alex

                      Hello Alex,

                      Although "Jacob van Heemskerck", "Z 7", "Z 8", "O 9" and "O 10" held excercises in the Baltic Sea
                      in the period 1.7 - 7.8.1931 they did not visit Riga.

                      Sorry Alex but I have no information on Danish warships visiting Riga.

                      Wish you success in your search for more information.

                      Regards,
                      Rob H.
