  • Tjerk Hiddes Van Galen

    Seeking help again...

    Does anyone have any photos of the destroyers Tjerk Hiddes G16 & Van Galen G84 as they looked in 1942?

      Dear Jan,

      Thank you. Your pictures of the just completed Van Galen confirms what she looked like then and rules her out.

      What I am therefore really after is pictures showing both sides of Tjerk Hiddes when she as in this paint scheme (nearest ship/on the right).

      Best wishes.

        Greetings from frigid (-20C) Ottawa,

        This photo appears on pp. 148-149 of The Kelly's: British J, K and N Class Destroyers of World War II, by Christopher Langtree, London, 2002. The caption reads
        The 20th Destroyer Flotilla on manoeuvres on 25 June 1942. Visible in this photograph are Tjerk Hiddes followed by Offa and Nepal. Tjerk Hiddes and Nepal would shortly sail to join the 7th Flotilla in the Indian Ocean and Nepal is already carrying her flotilla markings. The other side of Tjerk Hidde's. Camouflage is unknown.
        The photo credit is Imperial War Museum, A10300


        Cheers,

        Rob Stuart

          The IWM lists the photo as:

          A10300.jpg
          A division in a quarter line of three destroyers (right - left, HMS NONPAREIL, HMS OFFA and HMS NORSEMAN) at Scapa Flow during preparations for the Second Front.
          Catalogue number A 10300
          Part of ADMIRALTY OFFICIAL COLLECTION
          Subject period Second World War
          Alternative Names object category: Black and white
          Creator Royal Navy official photographer Ware, C J (Lt)
          Category photograph


          -----------------------------------------

          I wonder why they list the vessel on the right as HMS NONPAREIL, after some reading I think she never set sail as HMS NONPAREIL. She was already transferred to The Netherlands Navy.

          Seems there was some confusion in this thread because I made some mistakes posting / editing messages. Tom spotted it, I think all is back to normal now
