Dutch frigates have called here before, almost exactly 10 years ago . . .  The last photo in that link is the best . . .  two designs of Dutch fighting vessels separated by 400 years!

 

 

DeRuyter was here in connection with NATO exercises, I believe.  The reputation of the DeRuyter namesake can be compared to a Perry or a Jones in the US Navy.

Maybe someone can help me with all these flags.  All I recognize is the red/white lower flag . . .  signifying a pilot’s aboard.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who wishes the crew a welcome to the former New Amsterdam.  Other vessels of the HNLMS can be found here.

Here’s a biographical account of the namesake.
