Chance Encounter (Artist Proof)
Signed Limited Edition Print - World War II - Robert Taylor
A Dornier 24 flying boat of the Royal Netherlands Navy sights the Japanese invasion fleet off Kuching, British Borneo, 23 December, 1941. By chance it also sighted patrolling Dutch submarine K-X1V on the surface, unaware of the enemy position. Receiving the pilot's signal "enemy to the north east", the submarine quickly engaged, sinking two ships and damaging two in one of the first Allied successes against the Japanese in World War II.
Specially commissioned to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Royal Netherlands Navy Air Service
