CHANCE ENCOUNTER by 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.

A limited edition signed by Dutch veterans of World War II.
Each print is signed by 2 survivors of the flying boat’s aircrew
plus 3 crew members from submarine K-X1V
