We have just found this picture of the
Kota Gede amongst dad's pictures, on the reverse dad wrote "Over 2,000
airmen escaped from Java to India on this small cargo ship. Feb 27th
1942". "This little cargo ship saved me from being a prisoner of
war in Java on Feb 27 1942. Kota Gede (Dutch) left Tillichapp Harbour
27/2/1942 Java with about 2,000 airmen evacuated from Java to Ceylon now
called Sri Lanka".
