Hr. Ms Abraham Crijnssen

Dear All,
Watercolor of the “Hr.Ms Abraham Crijnssen” a minesweeper from the Dutch Navy build in 1936. She left Holland in 1937 with three sister ships to serve in Dutch Indië . The A Crijnssen was the only one from the four ships, that survived the Japanese forces in the Indian waters on an unusual way. The ship was camouflaged with nets holding trees and plants all over completely. In that way she sailed from Soerabaja to Australie but moved only in the night, while she stayed near islands during the day to refresh the green camouflage. 

She also can be seen at
