The four Amsterdam Directors' ships listed as being lost in the Three Days Battle
On photograph that I just received shows the four Amsterdam Directors' ships that were lost in the Three Days Battle (what the English called the Battle of Portland) from 28 February to 2 March 1653. They were the Croon Imperiael (kapitein Cornelis Jansz Poort), the Groote Liefde (kapitein Bruijn van Seelst), the Arcke Troijana (kapitein Abraham van Campen) and the Sint Francisco (kapitein Stoffel Juriaenszoon). There are no other Amsterdam Directors' shown to have been lost.
