HNLMS Schorpioen

Some pretty rare pictures of Dutch Schorpioen-class monitor HNLMS Schorpioen, provided by Ron van Maanen, taken during her renovation at 'The Schelde' shipyard in Vlissingen (Netherlands) in 1985.

   

She was then transferred to Middelburg as a museum ship. In 1998 the Royal Netherlands Navy purchased her back and she is now part of the Marine Museum in Den Helder as pictured below:
