Wanted Dutch/Indo WWII Veterans who are still among us ! Please share !
In the context of 75 years of liberation in 2019/2020, we are still making an ultimate attempt to find living WWII Dutch/Indo veterans at home and abroad who are still entitled to a military honor!
Who are we looking for? Living Dutch/Indo men who were mobilized at the time of the Japanese invasion in the Dutch East Indies for the KNIL and then in Japanese captivity
(during forced labor on the railway lines, shipyards or in the Japanese mines) and not have been rewarded with a War Remembrance Cross or Mobilization War Cross.
In addition, men who served between 1945 and 1951 in the Dutch East Indies and did not rewarded with the “Ereteken for Order and Peace”.
How can you help us ? Share this message within your network as much as possible and help !
