We found another portrait!

After our call in Aanspraak, the magazine for resistance fighters and war victims of the Dutch Sociale Verzekeringsbank, the daughter of Mr Ad van de Nagel gave us a call. She told us that her father had also been imprisoned in Changi. Ad van der Nagel, born in Rotterdam in 1903, joined the army in the Dutch East-Indies when he was 18. After fulfilling his military service, he first worked at a cocoa plantation in Sumatra, then moved to a plantation in the east of Java. During the mobilization in 1941 he was conscripted into the army; almost a year later he was imprisoned by the Japanese. Januari 1943 he ended up in Changi, where he was portrayed by his fellow-inmate Henk Brouwer.
