I heard about this ship before Jaap, but in 1937 there was already a HOLLAND (1). Nobody could confirm this maybe due to the war time? I don't know. I only know the name HOLLAND was- and is very common. Also De Lege had a HOLLAND in Terneuzen in that time as a payment for the lost of a bark in his company. So I have my doubts about this ship in Muller service, but as I said before I don't know. That is the reason I didn't mentioned her.
