Relying on the writings of his grandfather, Harm Hakkenes, Mr Sebastiaan Melof, wrote to say that the above list should be revised as follows:

1. Add Blokland, Lam

2. For Volker, the first names are Gerard and Piet.

3. Van Woerkom’s first name was Cees.

4. Van Ballegooijer’s [note different spelling] first name should be Gerrit.
