Description

A Dornier 24 flying boat of the Royal Netherlands Navy sights the Japanese invasion fleet off Kuching, British Borneo, 23 December, 1941. By chance it also sighted patrolling Dutch submarine K-X1V on the surface, unaware of the enemy position. Receiving the pilot’s signal “enemy to the north east”, the submarine quickly engaged, sinking two ships and damaging two in one of the first Allied successes against the Japanese in World War II.

THE SIGNATURES

Every print in the limited edition has been exclusively signed by Dutch veterans from World War II, including TWO of the Flying Boat’s aircrew plus THREE crew members from K XIV – all personally involved in the “Chance Encounter.”
