  TextEN  This ship was built 1931 for the Gouvernementsmarine, but could also be used as a large minelayer after some small modifications. During peace time, she was used as a yacht for the governor-general of the Netherlands East Indies. Modified for service as a minelayer during neutrality and commissioned as such on October 15, 1939. Sunk as a blockship in Batavia on March 2 1942, but salvaged by the Japanese in March, 1944 and partially repaired. Found in Batavia (Jakarta) in 1945 and returned to the N.E.I. government. Transferred to the Indonesian navy in 1951 and renamed Dewakembar (also: Dewa Kembar). Still under repair in Soerabaja in 1952. The plan was to commission her as survey vessel. Fate unknown, presumably scrapped.(792)
