Stories from the Sea, Past and Present

Jonkers, Johan Anton.

 

Captain Jonkers was promoted to Captain in 1960

 

Note to the reader:  I still have many gaps in the history of Captain Jonkers as he became captain in 1960 and the personnel records from that period are held by the HAL pension fund and are not open to the public.

So anybody who reads this and can help me with extra information and photos, please do so and email me at CaptAlbert1@aol.com.

Who was the man behind the photo and what did he do between  1949 and 1960. When did he retire and when did he pass away. Anecdotes very welcome.

(a) Some information below was forwarded by Mrs. & Mr. Hetty and Jeroen Bos.

    Greetings

    • thank you,

      I have added the year 1969 with Kinderdyk to the list. A complete list will be produced sometime in the future as I am still completing the sailing periods of all the captains in the 1960’s.

      Best regards

      Capt. Albert
