fire burn right of his neck and chest and a small scar on his forehead".
As family relationships he mentioned his father and a D.J. Roethof, living at the Sumatrastreet 61 in Zwolle (who she is is unknown till now, maybe his girlfrind).
On 1 January 1939 he's promoted to Sailor 3rd Class. After a short
stay in Vlissingen she arrived on 28 April 1938 in Java, Indonesia. He continued his journey
to Sumatra where he arrives on 15 June 1938. Effective from 26 July 1938 he served with the submarines, but somewhere else than in Sumatra, because on 28 August 1938 he returned to Java, as his militairy records shows. On 6 January 1939 he arrived on the H.M. Guardship Willemsoord (where it is anckored is unknown). He left on 10 May 1939 to East Indie and on 8 June 1939 he arrived in Baloeran for his tour of 3 years. There he was moved to the Navy Camp Oedjong. On 1 July 1939 he was transferred to the H.M. Prins van Oranje and on 27 December 1939 he joined H.M. van Nes where he was trained as a gunner. On 1 April 1940 he was promoted to Sailor 2nd Class and his gunner training ended on 13 April 1940. He was then transferred to mine layer ship Krakatou. On 1 September 1941 he was promoted to Sailor 1st Class.
On 9 March 1942 the Krakatau was sunk by its own crew, probably in the light of the Japanese enemy which was conquering the West-Indies after their attack on Pearl Harbor. How and when the crew became POWs (Prisoner of War) is unknown.
He died as a Japanese POW on 8 September 1943 in Quie (or Kuie) in Siam. He is burried in Kankuri plot 3, row B, #. 74-75.
On his tumbstone 14883 8-9-1943 KM matroos. Dirk Jan saved 1,771.15 Dutch guilders, his relatives also receives an amount of 748,35 guilders as compensation. This money was payed respectivily on 23 January 1947 and on 27 February 1947 to his father. According to the files of the Royal Navy they also paid his father in February 1955 an amount of. DFl. 61,73 as 'compensation Burma-Thailand rail road (click here for map of POW camps at the Birma railroad) . Out of that we can draw the conclusion that Dirk Jan worked as POW at the disreputable Burma rail road. In Fleet order 269 its said the he died on 18 September 1943 but same and other sources also talk of 8 September. We probably never will know what the real date of his death is.
