Korver de, Cornelis G.

Captain C de Korver. Falmouth 1917 at that time captain of the ss Gorredijk.

This is the first photo I have been able to find. Taken as part of a groups photo in 1917 at Falmouth England. Due to the First world war and the strict ships inspections going on, especially for neutral ships, there were 27 Dutch ships and captain at anchor near the port. They all got together on request of Captain Korver and the founded there the Dutch Captains Society. (photo via Martien Hoegen)
