Lt dSee DITMAR, Dutch Catalina pilot Java 1942

Hi guys

Hoping to find full identity of Dutch Catalina pilot DITMAR.

He was the pilot of Catalina Y-63 involved in the sinking of the Dutch steamship Van Imhoff on 20 January 1942. Is there a report available?

Cheers
Brian

Brian,
Just a little thing. Ditmar's rank was "Ltz 2e klasse" or in full Luitenant-ter-zee 2e klasse. This is the Dutch naval equivalent of an army captain.


Regards,
Leendert

Many thanks, my friends.

I was aware of the Van Imhoff website, but thanks.
