The Battle off Dover (19/29 May 1652)
I just finished updating my OOB and short description for the Battle off Dover. It now reflects the Dutch fleet's organization and order of sailing, as described in Dr. Ballhausen's book. I have also corrected the ship names, in a few cases, to reflect my best information. Now, the only ship name, for the Dutch, that we know nothing about, is Johannes van Regermorter's ship. For working purposes, I am calling it Leeuwin, but there is little basis for that. I expect it is a name that we have not previously seen used.
