Here's their Twitter page, with some interesting photos.

Dutch Marines


But now I think about the good times, down in the Caribbean sunshine...

Amen........get those c130 flights from curacao coming.

The good news is the dutch, french and british leaders all realize what happened and it is not a distant out of sight lack of appreciation.

According to their Twitter they have sent one boat to Curacao to resupply, and moved the other away from the island due to Jose.

I certainly hope they left a presence on the island!!

These are their last two Tweets:

'Condition at #SXM is grim. Partly due to lack of primary necessity and communication. Therefore, increasing days of capacity"

"Zr.Ms. Zeeland is currently on the coast of #SXM to avoid damage Jose. The Pelican is at CUR for re-supply."


"It is good to do nothing all day, and then to rest" wink
