Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Located at Amersfoort near the Amersfoort zoo lays the Prins Bernhard Kazerne.
This is the home of the Dutch cavalry. It houses the National cavalry museum with a very good collection.
Upon entering the barracks to the right you find the monument for the Huzaren van Boreel regiment.

Its 4th eskadron was sent to the Dutch Indies to help restore order and Dutch government.
The eskadron was lead by colonel (retired) De Jong.
He wrote a fantastic book about his time in the Dutch Indies.  Named: Mijn Ruiters, ISBN 978-90-813542-1-9
The names of the men Killed in action are written on a plaquette.
To the left of the monument you find an M4E8 Sherman, to the right a Humber Armored car.

The names of the fallen men on the plaquette are:

J. Minnema (MIA)
J.G. Ymker
H.G. Duran
A.J. Broekmaat
S. van Barneveld
G.J.A. van Schimmelpenninck
J.G. Bloemsma
A. Bosman
D. Peters
G.A. Hamel
J.C. van Hensbergen
G. van Gorkom
J.M. Lobato
F. Wagner
