Fort Dömitz ~ Fortress town of Dömitz

In the north of the Netherlands we are very pleased with the Fortress town of Bourtange, but there is also one of about the same size in Germany in Dömitz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Here is the link to the website!

Rijksmuseum visit

Weapons linked with the admirals Tromp snd De Ruyter.

A visit to Amsterdam

Today your editor visited the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum and also the Amsterdam (historical) museum. In the latter I found a painting of the failed storming of Aerdenburg in 1672.

 A bit strange to find it in Amsterdam, but interesting nonetheless. Note the mixed piket/musket units for instance!
