    This is our grandfather. We’ve never seen this picture before. We called our grandfather ‘opa pijp’. We really apreciate your interest for all these captains.

    With kind regards,

    Ilse van der Noordt

    P.s He never stopped smoking pipe.

    • Thank you for your interest. Please check his section again in a few months, I am working on his bio and there will be more photos then as well.

      Best regards

      Captain Albert
