ANDAMAN HISTORY The earliest archaeological evidence documented of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands goes back 2,200 years, however the indications from genetic, cultural and linguistic studies point to habitation going back 30,000 to 60,000 years. In the 18th century, the fearless Marathas admirals Kanhoji Angre, based himself on the islands and from this strategic outpost attacked passing Portuguese, Dutch and English merchant vessels enroute to their colonies in the East Indies. Despite many efforts by the British and Portuguese naval forces, Kanhoji Angre was never defeated until his death in 1729. The mighty Cholas too used parts of these alluring islands as a base and accounts relate that Marco Polo was among the first from the West to set foot on these emerald shores. The more recent history of the Andamans begins post the Great Indian Mutiny of 1857, when the Crown took over the running of the Indian empire and annexed the islands in the 19th century. They turned them into a penal colony for Indian ...

Objectives The attack had several major aims. First, it intended to destroy important American fleet units, thereby preventing the Pacific Fleet from interfering with Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and Malaya. Second, it was hoped to buy time for Japan to consolidate its position and increase its naval strength before shipbuilding authorized by the 1940 Vinson-Walsh Act erased any chance of victory.[47][48] Finally, it was meant to deliver a severe blow to American morale, one which would discourage Americans from committing to a war extending into the western Pacific Ocean and Dutch East Indies. To maximize the effect on morale, battleships were chosen as the main targets, since they were the prestige ships of any navy at the time. The overall intention was to enable Japan to conquer Southeast Asia without interference.[47] Striking the Pacific Fleet at anchor in Pearl Harbor carried two distinct disadvantages: the targeted ships would be in very shallow water, so it would be relatively easy ...

The Australian Malays Cocos Malays are a community that form the predominant group of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, which is now part of Australia. The Cocos Malays are originated from the descendants of Malay settlers from the British colonies of British Malaya, Singapore, Brunei and the Riau Archipelago of Dutch East Indies. The first Malays are believed to have arrived and settled in the Islands in 1826 "when Alexander Hare, an English adventurer brought his Malay harem and slaves there." [2] In 1827 John Clunies-Ross changed the lives of the Malay slaves when he settled the Islands with his family. The existing Malays and large number of newly arrived Malay immigrants that Clunies-Ross brought with him were employed to assist with the harvesting of coconuts for copra.[2] In September 1978, the Clunies-Ross family sold Cocos Islands to the Australian government. Since then, the Chief of State has been Queen Elizabeth II, represented by the current Governor-General, Administrator Brian Lacy. The Chairman ...

Founded in February 2000 In Perth Western Australia. What does VOC mean? It stands for Verengide Oostindische Compagnie (United East Indies Company). It was formed in the Netherlands in1602 with the aim of sending ships to East Asia to buy pepper, cinnamon and other spices and trade them on European markets. The VOC grew rapidly to become a multinational company with trading forts in southern Africa and all over Asia. halfway through the 18th century, the VOC employed something like 25,000 persons, 3,000 in the Netherlands. The VOC built its own ships, a total of 1500, which together made 5,000 journeys to Asia. They established a network of trading posts stretching from the Persian gulf to the Chinese Sea. The VOC ended its existence as a trading company in 1800. Many of the voyages to East Asia passed along the coast of Western Australia (then known as New Holland). History records that whilst some VOC ships landed on WA's shore successfully, others came to grief there. We know of at least 4 VOC ships t ...

question four done! Question 4: At what point in the chain of events (1763-1776) did a war between England and the Colonies become inevitable? Explain. `The important events that happened between 1763 to 1776 was all of them. Why I say all of them is because each event from 1763 to 1776 impact on how much the colonists were starting to hate the British and the British hating the colonies. It made tension between the colonies, which enables all the events that happened between those times. Examples of what I mean by this is for instance one of the events that happened in 1763 was the French and Indian war. This was the war dealing with the Ohio River Valley. The British ended up asking the colonist to help fight and they said no they didn’t want anything to do with it. The refusal from the colonists made British mad. Then you after the French and Indian War you get the Proclamation of 1763. This set up regulations for the colonist to not travel to the Ohio River Valley. This separated Indians and the c . ...

Feb 17, 1782: French and British battle in the Indian Ocean The worldwide implications of the American War for Independence are made clear on this day in history as the American-allied French navy begins a 14-month-long series of five battles with the British navy in the Indian Ocean. Between February 17, 1782, and September 3, 1782, French Admiral Pierre Andre de Suffren de Saint-Tropez, otherwise known as Bailli de Suffren, and British Vice-Admiral Sir Edward Hughes, commander in chief in the East Indies, engaged in four major battles in the Indian Ocean region: the Battle of Sadras on February 17, the Battle of Providien on April 12, the Battle of Negapatam on July 6 and the Battle of Trincomalee on September 3. The French attacked British possessions on the Indian coast and in Ceylon as part of the world war spawned by the American Revolution. Although Suffren failed to take any of Hughes' ships, he managed to prevent Hughes from taking any of his own fleet. This alone was a significant improvement in ...

ika 138 araw ng unisan...mabuhay po tayo mga unisanin. Unisan, originally called Kalilayan, could be considered the oldest town in the Philippines. As early as 1521, the town of Kalilayan was founded by Malayan settlers. All other towns in the country were established not earlier than 1565, when Spain formally occupied the Philippines as a colony. During the latter part of the 19th century, traditions said that the real founder of the town was a Malayan queen called of Ladya. Hence her title was "Queen of Kalilayan".[citation needed] It is believed that the founding occurred in the Middle Ages when immigration of the Malayans to this country was still predominant. That was before the advent of Islam in the East Indies. This proven by the fact that no traces of Mohamed’s Creed were found in that part of the Philippines when the Europeans arrived. The name Kalilayan derived from the Tagalog root word lilay, referring to a kind of palm similar to buri with the smaller leaves in the size of anahaw leaves th ...
The Byzantines were able to regain control of the country after a brief Persian invasion early in the 7th century, until 639–42, when Egypt was invaded and conquered by the Islamic Empire by the Muslim Arabs. When they defeated the Byzantine Armies in Egypt, the Arabs brought Sunni Islam to the country. Early in this period, Egyptians began to blend their new faith with indigenous beliefs and practices, leading to various Sufi orders that have flourished to this day.[8] These earlier rites had survived the period of Coptic Christianity.[10] Muslim rulers nominated by the Islamic Caliphate remained in control of Egypt for the next six centuries, with Cairo as the seat of the Caliphate under the Fatimids. With the end of the Kurdish Ayyubid dynasty, the Mamluks, a Turco-Circassian military caste, took control about AD 1250. By the late 13th century, Egypt linked the Red Sea, India, Malaya, and East Indies.[11] They continued to govern the country until the conquest of Egypt by the Ottoman Turks in 1517, a ...
Philippines- A Tamil Hindu Colony? The Pre-Spanish history of Philippines was shrouded in mystery. Now the mist around the Philippines is clearing thanks to recent discoveries. The Spaniards, wherever they went, destroyed the local culture, plundered their gold and massacred the people. They spared those people who converted to Christianity. The Philippines is a country of 7000 islands. Nobody asked or wondered what those places were called before they named it “ Philippines” just 400 years ago. They had their own names, their own culture, but they were ignored as primitive and uncivilized. Fortunately one inscription and one golden statue escaped the wrath of the religious fanatics. One important Tamil inscription of Rajendra Chola was not properly explained. Half of the place names mentioned in the inscription is not properly identified. The East Indies were known to Kalidasa of 1st century BC. Parasurama was linked with Aparanta. Kalidasa used to mention Indonesia and the islands beyond as Dwipant ...

On February 17th in American history: 1765 — The House of Commons passed the Stamp Act. The Stamp Act became one of the primary points of contention between the American colonists and Parliament in the years leading up to the Revolutionary War. The Act placed a small tax on 54 separate items, all things made of paper, such as contracts, wills, playing cards, newspapers, almanacs, etc. The Act was part of Prime Minister George Grenville's plan to reduce the massive debt incurred by the British treasury during the French and Indian War. All the money raised by the Act was to be used within the colonies to pay for the expenses of British soldiers stationed there after the end of the war. The colonists did not object to paying taxes. They did, however, have a strong opinion about who could tax them. English law provided that people could only be taxes by their elected representatives. Since the colonies had no representatives in Parliament, Parliament could not legally tax them. Instead, they believed the p ...
The FIRST RECORDED Chinese man to visit Britain was a Qing Dynasty government bureaucrat turned world traveller by the name of Michael Alphonsius Shen Fu-Tsung. Fu-Tsung's first brush with Europe came while in the Portuguese colony of Macao, where he met the Procurator of the Chinese Jesuit Missions in Rome, Philippe Couplet, and was converted to Catholicism. Their shared travels took him to the Spanish Netherlands, now known as Belgium; to Rome, where Couplet was tasked with obtaining a papal dispensation for the Mass to be translated into Chinese; to France, where Fu-Tsung taught King Louis XIV to use chopsticks, and which triggered a reverse "visit" of French Jesuit mathematicians to the Chinese court in Nanjing; and finally, England. In 1686, Fu-Tsung met with King James II, who was so enamored of the visit that he commissioned a portrait of Fu-Tsung by Sir Godfry Kneller, to be hung (weirdly) in his bedchamber. Fu-Tsung went on to catalogue the Chinese collection at the Bodleian Library, before his . ...
The Myrtle Point Herald week after Dec. 7, 1941 WAR DECLARED ON U.S. BY JAPAN, GERMANY AND ITALY Attack On Hawaii Sunday By Japan Without Warning Myrtle Point Herald Dec. 11, 1942 This week will go down in the records as one of the important ones in history. The Second World War became a completely accomplished fact with the declaration of war on the United States by Japan, Germany and Italy, and the acceptance by the United States of that challenge by acknowledging a state of war with these three Axis powers. Great Britain, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, East Indies, The Philippines, and many other smaller counties took sides and cast their lot with the democracies of war or extension of aid to the democratic side.

Christopher Columbus, an Italian Jew, named the American natives as Indios. ez/car/39 "Never admitting that he had reached a continent previously unknown to Europeans, rather than the East Indies he had set out for, Columbus called the inhabitants of the lands he visited indios (Spanish for "Indians")," says Wikipedia. While boarding his ship, he was perhaps unaware that he would be driven by two other cycles: the north equatorial ocean current beneath and the north easterly trade winds above of the Atlantic, both of which were powerful engines moving clockwise from Spain to America. And his sail ship was using those engines. There was no way he could reach Japan except go around South America or through a yet non-existent Panama Canal - because in those days America "did not exist", at least in Western minds. The off-spin of the discovery was that it would make way to fulfill the end of a long cherished cycle of 7 times (2520 years) for the nations of Jacob to reign in the times of the Gentiles. If the c ...
PIRATICAL ATTACKS It is assumed that because of the coastal setting and location of the town of San Remigio, she carried with her a past event that was phenomenal before... and that, people could never forget-- piratical raids and attacks taking people into captivity and slavery or commodity. In the work of Domingo M. Non, he described that the scales and intensity of slave raids increased during the Spanish period, when the rewards of the slave market became more enticing with the demands for slaves in the Dutch East Indies (after all, slavery was about business and economy). It should also be noted that the earlier scattered settlements of the natives were grouped by the Spaniards into a “presidio” near the Church for easy administration. This made the entire community an easy target for slavery by the capturing raiders. Further, the relatively weak resistance shown by the inhabitants was DUE to the SPANISH POLICY of PROHIBITING THEM from CARRYING ANY FORMS OF ARMS which they might have used for sel ...

Learn more about Mandela's time on Robben Island! People lived on Robben Island many thousands of years ago, when the sea channel between the Island and the Cape mainland was not covered with water. Since the Dutch settled at the Cape in the mid-1600s, Robben Island has been used primarily as a prison. Indigenous African leaders, Muslim leaders from the East Indies, Dutch and British soldiers and civilians, women, and anti-apartheid activists, were all imprisoned on the Island. Nobel Laureate and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 18 of the 27 years he served behind bars before the fall of apartheid. Robben Island has not only been used as a prison. It was a training and defence station in World War II (1939-1945) and a hospital for people with leprosy, and the mentally and chronically ill (1846-1931). Since 1997 it has been a museum and a heritage site. The Robben Island Tour includes: •A return boat trip across Table Bay •A visit to the infamous Maxim ...

Written by The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica East India Company, also called English East India Company, formally (1600–1708) Governor and Company of Merchants of London Trading into the East Indies, or (1708–1873) United Company of Merchants of England Trading to the East Indies, English company formed for the exploitation of trade with East and Southeast Asia and India, incorporated by Royal Charter on December 31, 1600. Starting as a monopolistic trading body, the company became involved in politics and acted as an agent of British imperialism in India from the early 18th century to the mid-19th century. In addition, the activities of the company in China in the 19th century served as a catalyst for the expansion of British influence there. The company was formed to share in the East Indian spice trade. This trade had been a monopoly of Spain and Portugal until the defeat of the Spanish Armada (1588) by England gave the English the chance to break the monopoly. Until 1612 the company conduct ...
Ruston and van Heemstra married in the Dutch-Colonial Batavia, Dutch East Indies in September 1926. They moved back to Europe, to Ixelles in Belgium, where Audrey Hepburn was born in 1929. In January 1932 the family moved on to Linkebeek, a nearby Brussels municipality. Although born in Belgium, Hepburn held British citizenship through her father. Because of her mother's family in the Netherlands and her father's British background and job with a British company, the family often travelled between the three countries. With her multinational background, she went on to speak fluent English, Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian. Hepburn participated in ballet by the age of 5. Childhood and adolescence during World War II Hepburn's parents were members of the British Union of Fascists in the mid-1930s, with her father becoming a true Nazi sympathiser.

THE MARIJUANA AND HASHISH ERA-PART 1 The discovery of the passage to the East Indies by way of the Cape of Good Hope was one of the great events of Western European history. Besides bringing great wealth, the explorations that followed the trade routes, the conquests, and the early settlements in the East helped to free Western Europeans from the shackles of medieval parochialism. Once their imaginations had been whetted, Europeans craved to know more and more about the people who lived in these far-off lands. What the people of India looked like, what they ate, how they dressed, acted, thought, etc., fascinated erstwhile provincially minded Europeans. Even the momentous landing on the moon pales before the excitement generated by the landings of the first explorers in the East Indies. In the marketplace of ideas, the demand for news far outstripped supply and created an insatiable outlet for travelogues, or itineraries as they were often called. To supply this demand, anyone and everyone who visited thes ...

(from Mary Knox) My parents' friendship with 'Aunt Lisbet' is one of my earliest memories. She was a most remarkable person: intellectual, artistic, a little intimidating to strangers but a loving friend. From a well-off family in Germany, she was happily married until her husband was involved in a ballooning accident and drowned in the Baltic sea. She turned to the study of painting and did extremely well; by the time post-World-War 1 inflation in Germany destroyed her financial security, she was beginning to earn a living from the sales of her paintings.  In 1923 she made the courageous decision to travel the world, supporting herself by holding exhibitions and selling paintings and prints, and giving talks about Germany and about her travels. After spending time in the Dutch East Indies, South and Central America, Africa and finally Australia, she came to New Zealand - and World War 2 broke out. As an 'enemy alien' she came under considerable suspicion. I remember my mother telling me that in one offi ...

"Captain George East has just arrived from the West Indies *in walks super buff pirate guy with wind blowing*"
We know that "Indian" is not their name. Columbus set out for the East Indies, wound up in the West Indies, and slapped an arbitrary name on a people. When you accept a name that you are not, in time you become what you are not. Richard Moore said, "Slaves and dogs are named by their masters, free men name themselves." So in this country, when we began to accept the word *** which means nothing, and accept the word colored which means even less, and accept the word Black which only tells you how you look and not who you are, we failed to understand that we had been named, and we must become namers, we must be namers of ourselves. - Dr. John Henrik Clarke via craig combs

The Baweanese (Boyanese) The Baweanese or Boyanese came from the Bawean Island in the Dutch East Indies. They built the Kampung Boyan (Boyanese Village) by the banks of the Rochor River, between Jalan Besar and Syed Alwi Road since the time of Munshi Abdullah. Most of them came to Singapore in the late 19th century until the end of Second World War. The majority of them worked as horse cart drivers and later as motorcar drivers. They could not be considered poor as their lands in Bawean were fertile; they had come in search of cash earnings. They wanted to purchase jewellery made of gold and goods that they could bring back to their villages. Some also wanted to build a better life for themselves in Singapore. Most of them were young men who came and supported themselves, living in communal houses. There were several such houses built in Singapore.

Mexicano (Mexican) is derived from the word Mexico itself. In the principal model to create demonyms in Spanish, the suffix -ano is added to the name of the place of origin. The term Mexicano as a word to describe the different peoples of the region of Mexico as a single group emerged in the 16th century. In that time the term did not apply to a nationality nor to the geographical limits of the modern Mexican Republic. The term was used for the first time in the first document printed in Barcelona in 1566 which documented the expedition which launched from the port in Acapulco to find the best route which would favor a return journey from the Spanish East Indies to New Spain. The document stated: "el venturoso descubrimiento que los Mexicanos han hecho" (the venturous discovery that the Mexicans have made). That discovery led to the Manila galleon trade route and those "Mexicans" referred to Criollos, Mestizos and Amerindians alluding to a plurality of persons who participated for a common end: the conque ...
East Indies, a cast that eat nothing that had life. (2/2)
Christopher Columbus’ SantA Who sailed on the voyage? When Christopher Columbus proposed the expedition to the East Indies to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the Crown was to provide everything the expedition needed. The three ships, the Santa María, Niña, and Piñta, were to sail from Palos, Spain. The crew would be pulled from Palos and surrounding towns: Moguer, Huelva, Lepe, Cadiz, Seville, Cordova, Jerez, and Puerto Santa Maria. The crew also included a few men who stayed aboard the Santa María; they were from the north country of Basque and Galicia. Columbus had a difficult time hiring sailors. Many of the seasoned mariners looked questionably at the Italian Admiral and the duration of his proposed trip. A few old timers vouched for the voyage, as did the Pinzón brothers, Martín Alonso Pinzón (Captain of the Niña) and Vicente Yáñez Pinzón (Captain of the Piñta), who recruited relatives, friends, and former employees. The expedition carried a few families such as the Niños, Quinteros ...
President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war. FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by - denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI) on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet. BACKGROUND 1904 - The Japanese destroyed the Russian navy in a surprise attack in undeclared war. 1932 - In The Grand Joint Army Navy Exercises the attacker, Admiral Yarnell, attacked with 152 planes a half-hour before dawn 40 miles NE of Kahuku Point and caught the defenders of Pearl Harbor completely by surprise. It was a Sunday. 1938 - Admiral Ernst King led a carrier-born airstrike from th ...
Rana Pipiens Rana Pipiens posted a photo: Lux mundi, Light of the World, is one of the names given this beautiful plant by Georg Eberhard Rumphius (1627-1702). Rumphius - who was to become blind and yet persevered as a botanist - was employed by the Dutch East Indies Trading Company (VOC) on the Indonesian Maluku island of Ambon. He is famous for his naturalist descriptions, especially for his series of great plant books (kept a company secret by the VOC until 1743!). In most of the literature our pretty plant is described as a native of the West Indies, hence one of its names: The Pride of Barbados (see also my posting: But the fine new edition of Francis Ng's, Tropical Horticulture & Gardening stimulated me to delve a bit deeper.

The Apostle Islands are a result of the glaciers that once covered North America. “Geologically they are originally part of the main land at the edge of the great riff or fault which formed the depression to which the waters of Lake Superior collected.” When the glaciers melted, waves from the waters of Lake Superior caused erosion that formed the islands. The islands are composed of mostly red sandstone because of the glacial shift. It is widely assumed that Indians were the first to inhabit the island. “There is some evidence that they were seen and possibly visited sometime in the fourteenth century by Indians who were making their way to Isle Royale near the north shore of the land in search of copper.” Not long after, the islands were visited by Étienne Brûlé, a French explorer who, like many French Canadians, was trying to discover a new way to the East Indies. "Historians believe that the Jesuits named the islands the Apostle Islands according to their practice of giving holy names to ne ...

KNOW THE FACTS: EXPOSING THE FRAUDULENT AND ILLEGAL INDONESIAN CLAIMS OVER WEST PAPUA. Indonesian claims over the lawful integration of West Papua into the Republic of Indonesia is actually based on historical fraud and lies, is hollow and will not stand the test of a legal challenge should the matter be raised in a competent court of international law. The claims by the Indonesian Republic need to be exposed, and the world must know the true pre-colonial and colonial history of West Papua to effectively participate in a peaceful campaign to free West Papua of continued Indonesian colonial rule. The facts that the Indonesian Government cannot deny are as follows: Fact 1 – West Papua is MELANESIAN, NOT INDONESIAN OR ASIAN West Papua was never part of the Muslim or Hindu Empires that existed prior to the creation of the Dutch East Indies by the Kingdom of Holland in the 16th century. So West Papua does not have any part in the shared Indonesian pre-colonial history. The national myths that justify the exi ...

History of South Africa South Africa at a glance Getting around South Africa Destinations Need to know History of South Africa Between 200 000 and 100 000 years ago, modern humans began to evolve throughout Africa – including South Africa. They became the San, who later met up with south-bound Khoi pastoralists from the north and became known collectively as the KhoiSan. The KhoiSan drifted down into the Western Cape at about the same time (300AD) that early Iron Age groups crossed the Limpopo – whose descendants, about 1 000 years later, formed the African kingdom of Mapungubwe and began to trade with India, Arabia and China. Blood River Monument, KwaZulu-Natal In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck and his 90-strong party arrived from The Netherlands and set up a ship-refuelling station at Cape Town – an important stop both geographically and politically, as it was on the only early trade route from Europe and the Americas to India, the ‘Spice Islands’ of the East Indies, and the East.

When Europeans first met other cultures, common assumption was that these must be literally soul-less savages, of which there is only something to take, but certainly nothing to learn. Partly instigated by the ideas of hierarchy-based religion, partly by the incessant and exhaustive internal competition between European nations, this assumption dictated colonial attitudes for around 500 years. Today, five centuries after Polo and Columbus, with the ideas of hierarchy-based religion gradually fading to the background, and with the incessantly competitive character of the European way of life proving exhaustive and detrimental to ever more individuals, It seems we are finally approaching the point where we are REALLY about to discover the route to the East Indies; the REAL winds that will sail us to the New World.

This Day in U.S. Military History January 11th 1775 – Francis Salvador, the first Jew to be elected in the Americas, takes his seat on the South Carolina Provincial Congress. In June 1776, Salvador, a Patriot, became known as the “Southern Paul Revere” when he warned Charleston, South Carolina, of the approaching British naval fleet. Thanks to Salvador’s intelligence information, Fort Sullivan in Charleston harbor was able to prepare for the British attack, and the half-completed fort successfully repelled an attack by a British fleet under Sir Peter Parker. On August 1 of the same year, while leading a militia group under the general command of Major Wilkinson, Salvador and his men were ambushed by a group of Cherokees and Loyalists near present-day Seneca, South Carolina.

More than 800 dead laws, some of which date back to the 14th century, should be swept away in a bid to clear up the statute book, a report said today. The oldest, from around 1322, regulated how animals should be taken to pay the king's debts, including details on how they should be fed, cared for and sold, and what livestock should be exempt. It is part of one of 50 Acts which should be partly repealed along with a total of 817 whole Acts, the joint report by the Law Commission for England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission said. The move is the largest repeals Bill the two commissions have ever produced and is expected to be introduced into Parliament this summer.

  Two companies, numbering 849 paratroopers, from the 1st Yokosuka SNLF, carried out Japan's first ever combat air drop, during the Battle of Menado, in the Netherlands East Indies, on January 11, 1942.[2] Four hours before the airborne landings, the 1st Sasebo SNLF had come ashore by sea nearby.[1] Commander Toyoaki Horiuchi:[2] led the 1st Yokosuka SNLF (519 men in two waves) in the Menado operation. The Imperial Japanese Navy fielded naval paratroopers during World War II. The troops were officially part of the Special Naval Landing Forces (SNLF or Rikusentai).[1] They came from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Yokosuka SNLFs. The 2nd Yokosuka took no part in any airborne operations and became an island defensive base unit.[2] They were under the operational control of the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS or Dai-Nippon Teikoku Kaigun Koku Hombu). Rikusentai paratroopers should not be confused with the Imperial Japanese Army paratroopers, known as Teishin.
Java (Indonesian: Jawa) (Javanese: ꦗꦮ) is an island of Indonesia. With a population of 135 million (excluding the 3.6 million on the island of Madura which is administered as part of the provinces of Java), Java is the world's most populous island, and one of the most densely populated places in the world. Java is the home of 60 percent of the Indonesian population. The Indonesian capital city, Jakarta, is located on western Java. Much of Indonesian history took place on Java. It was the center of powerful Hindu-Buddhist empires, the Islamic sultanates, and the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies. Java was also the center of the Indonesian struggle for independence during the 1930s and 40s. Java dominates Indonesia politically, economically and culturally. Formed mostly as the result of volcanic eruptions, Java is the 13th largest island in the world and the fifth largest island in Indonesia. A chain of volcanic mountains forms an east-west spine along the island. It has three main languages, thoug ...

Hello there, thank you for adding me to the group. My name is Mitzi, from Sydney Australia. My mother is Indonesian and my father is Dutch, but he passed away when I was very young so unfortunately I don't know much about the Dutch side. My Grandfather was Joseph Theodore Koks who lived in Indonesia around the 1930s (?). He wrote a few books, but was best known for his book 'De Indo.' His wife's name was Irma and my father was Theodore (Ted) Marius Koks. My ancestry has been traced back to Jeramius Van Reimsdijk, Governer General of the Dutch East Indies (1775-1777). If anyone thinks they might be related to me, feel free to say hello! I'm sure there will be quite a few, as apparently Van Reimsdijk had 5 wives!
The story of the ABDA Fleet Whilst the soldiers were fighting on the ground, the sailors and airmen were busy too. The military success of Japan in December 1941 and early 1942 shocked the Allies. the bombing of Singapore, the attack on Pearl Harbour, the invasion of Malaya and the Phillipines, the take-over of Hong Kong and the sinking of HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales, the capture of the American base at Wake Island, the closure of the Burma Road through to China... the losses kept mounting up. The Japanese Army and Navy were supported by long-range aircraft which were fast and manouverable. Their ships were armed with the most lethal torpedoes in the world, the 'long lance' which was more accurate and twice as fast as the American equivalent. The Japanese fighter plane, the 'Zero' was fast with good range and a dog-fighter to match the Allies fabled 'Spitfire'. However the war-mongering Japanese also had some serious strategic deficiencies to overcome... they had to import nearly all their raw mat ...
A background of the amphibious tank PZInż.130 lays in designs of well-known British designers, John Carden(W) and Vivian Loyd. Working for Vickers-Armstrongs, they designed numerous successful light tanks, which were exported to many countries and influenced many other designs in the world. From 1928 they had been developing a line of the Light Tanks for the British Army, and similar light tanks for export (Vickers Carden-Loyd 4 ton - more on 4TP page). In 1929 they designed Vickers Carden-Loyd Amphibian Tank. It retained features of 4-ton light tanks, like a paired bogey-type suspension with two wheels per bogey, sprung on leaf springs, an engine placed in the right part of the hull, two men crew and a rotating MG-armed turret. The new design introduced a watertight hull of a pontoon shape, and mudguards serving as floats. In water it was driven by a propeller and steered with a ring rudder. It was the first successful amphibious tank design in the world, and the first one produced in series. The Britis ...
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed by Consolidated Aircraft of San Diego, California. It was known within the company as the Model 32, and a small number of early models were sold under the name LB-30, for Land Bomber. The B-24 was used in World War II by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean, and China-Burma-India Theaters. Often compared with the better-known Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-24 was a more modern design with a higher top speed, greater range, and a heavier bomb load; it was also more difficult to fly, with heavy control forces and poor formation flying characteristics. Popular opinion among aircrews and general staffs tended to favour the B-17's rugged qualities above all other considerations in the European Theatre. The placement of the B-24's fuel tanks throughout the upper fuselag ...
T - 26 Days. Island of Cebu. Between the 13th and 16th century Cebu then known as Zubu[6] (or Sugbo) was an island inhabited by Hindus, animists and Muslims[7] ruled by Rajahs and Datus.[8] It was a kingdom of the defunct Rajahnate of Cebu. The Rajahnate of Cebu was a native kingdom which used to exist in Cebu prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. It was founded by Sri 'Lumay' otherwise known as 'Rajamuda Lumaya', a native prince of the Chola dynasty which had invaded Sumatra in Indonesia. He was sent by the Maharajah to establish a base for expeditionary forces to subdue the local kingdoms, but he rebelled and established his own independent Rajahnate instead.[9] Nao Victoria, Magellan's ship Replica The arrival of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 established a period of Spanish exploration and colonization.[10][11] Losing favor for his plan of reaching the Spice Islands from king Manuel I of Portugal, by sailing west from Europe, Magellan offered his services to king Charles I of Spain.

currently reading a book entitled The Invention of Racism In Classical Antiquity (meaning: racism in western antiquity). Though unmentioned so far and absent from the index is Giambattista Vico's name or of his related major work "New Science" (Pub. first 1725). What Issac (the author) is describing places his" proto-racism" as effectively the same as Vico's "conceits of nations." Both tend to be strong in the establishing a specific "nation' (in the modern and ancient sense) and in sustaining an "eternalization" of that specific societal order and social stability. The US really needs to come to terms with its actual history. In a very strong sense the independence of the English colonies had two different definitions of "independence." Due to the Sommerset Decison in 1772 in England, those that benefited from slavery both in the north and in the south wanted independence because it was n their interests to perpetuate slavery. In the US early rise to imperialism technically begins with the "Spanish-Amer ...

I don't like to hang on to names of my family, uncles mostly, who taught my brothers their serak art or neither do I even wish to write conceptionally about them. There is already so much fighting going on - (was always trembled upon) under those human conditions for not knowing anything, and need my space and time for only people who really had inspired me. My father in law, Carl August Samuel Deerns, who taught me humility first, and techniques later. A total opposite from any of my uncles or many others of the older generations of Dutch Indonesians, who only knew about fighting. Of most with a few excamples here and there. Carl taugth me history, philosophy, and I was actually forced to read history with him, in his garage, before he . ...
South African history has been dominated by the communication and conflict of several diverse ethnic groups. The aboriginal Khoikhoi people have lived in the region for millennia. Most of the population, however, trace their history to immigration since. Indigenous Africans in South Africa are descendants of immigrants from further north in Africa who first entered what are now the confines of the country roughly one thousand seven hundred years ago. White South Africans are descendants of later European settlers, mainly from the Netherlands and Britain. The Coloureds are descended at least in part from all of these groups, as well as from slaves from Madagascar, East Africa and the then East Indies, and there are many South Africans of Indian and Chinese origin, descendants of labourers who arrived in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The history of South Africa is taken here more broadly to cover the history not only of the current South African state but of other polities in the region, inc ...
What's going on? Deconstructing Bananas Foster: From the East Indies to the Amazon to Uptown
A BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY South Africa was settled by the Dutch in 1652 as a stopping point for ships on their way to the East Indies. Fruit and vegetables were grown here to battle the problem of scurvy aboard passing ships. The Dutch first settled the area that was to become Cape Town and with time expanded across the entire tip of southern Africa. After the Napoleonic wars in 1815, South Africa changed hands and became a British colony. Many of the Dutch went north to get away from the English. Here they encountered tribes that, over time, had moved south from central Africa. There ensued a period of war between the Dutch Boers and the Zulus, a powerful tribe led by Shaka. The Boers eventually won and created an Afrikaner state in the north. In 1899 there were the Boer Wars as a result of the English trying to annex this Afrikaner state. In 1910 South Africa became a union, a coalition between the English and Afrikaner states. In 1960 South Africa gained independence from British rule and beca ...

"No, I'm NOT asking for directions. The East Indies are somewhere around here. I'm sure of it."
In fact, when Columbus got here (he landed in the Caribbean Islands if you wanna split hairs), he knew early on he wasn't in the East Indies
He was also Italian, not Spanish. He was just funded by Spain to find a faster way to the East Indies.

Christopher Columbus (Italian: Cristoforo Colombo; Spanish: Cristóbal Colón; Portuguese: Cristóvão Colombo; born between Aug. 26 and Oct. 31?, 1451 – 20 May 1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, and colonizer, born in the Republic of Genoa, in what is today northwestern Italy.[3][4][5][6] Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean that led to general European awareness of the American continents. Those voyages, and his efforts to establish permanent settlements on the island of Hispaniola, initiated the Spanish colonization of the New World. In the context of emerging western imperialism and economic competition between European kingdoms seeking wealth through the establishment of trade routes and colonies, Columbus's speculative proposal, to reach the East Indies by sailing westward, eventually received the support of the Spanish crown, which saw in it a promise, however remote, of gaining the upper hand over rival powers in the con ...

"The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of black-skins, signaled the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production. These idyllic proceedings are the chief moments of primitive accumulation. On their heels treads the commercial war of the European nations, with the globe for a theatre. It begins with the revolt of the Netherlands from Spain, assumes giant dimensions in England's Anti-Jacobin War, and is still going on in the opium wars against China, &c. The different moments of primitive accumulation distribute themselves now, more or less in chronological order, particularly over Spain, Portugal, Holland, France, and England. In England at the end of the 17th century, they arrive at a systematical combination, embracing the colonies, the national debt, the modern mode of taxation, and the prot ...
The Silk Road and spice trade routes were blocked by the Ottoman Empire in 1453 spurring exploration to find alternative sea routes. This search for new sea routes to trade with Aisia is known as "The Age of Discovery" ... The Age of Discovery (also known as the Age of Exploration) was a period starting in the early 15th century and continuing to the 17th century. During this period Europeans explored Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania. The fall of Constantinople in 1453 severed European trade links by land with Asia leading many to begin seeking routes east by sea and spurred the age of exploration. Historians often refer to the 'Age of Discovery' as the pioneer Portuguese and Spanish long-distance maritime travels in search of alternative trade routes to "the East Indies", motivated by the trade of gold, silver,silk, porcelain, and spices. The Portuguese began systematically exploring the Atlantic coast of Africa from 1418, under the sponsorship of Prince Henry. In 1488, Bartolomeu Dias reached the ...
Just so you know. What does America and the Philippines have in common? They were both discovered by mistake, when Christopher Columbus set sail to find the East Indies, traveling to the west instead (as earlier stories of Marco Polo travels to the east). He stop at the island of Bahamas and declared its people Indians ( Indios in Spanish). Similarly when Magellan landed in the island of the Philippines, claimed it for King Charles V and called its people Indios. Just so you know.
Prologue 15 March 1824 London, Great Britain   “Anton, the terms of the treaty, as given by the British, is that first of all, we must agree to both the Netherlands and Great Britain being able to trade in any territories of India belonging to Britain, Ceylon, along with the East Indies, and finally Malaya. Do you concur with these terms?” “These terms are satisfactory, Hendrik. Both nations benefit from these terms- do move on to the other terms now.” “Both nations agree not to negotiate any trade embargoes with any Eastern states against the other state. Both nations also agree not to use civil or military forces to in any way prevent trade.” “Indeed, cooperation is of much importance between the two countries. Hostility between the two nations should be on the nethermost of the list of both nations’ interests. These terms are accepted.” “Both nations will agree to oppose all forms of piracy and not provide shelter to any pirates or countenance the vending of pirated goods.” “Su ...

TATTOO IS CULTURE IN PHILIPPINES HISTORY : The Real Filipino Roots: How we became… The Malay Archipelago before government and politics and nationalism started/ consisted of only what we know now, as Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Within the vast archipelago these islands was not inhabited yet, only by Pre-historic animals. FIRST WAVE: The First indigenous people that traveled to explore new homeland was the Aetas (Negritos: which are crossed with Afro-Asiatic and Austro-Aborigines). The Aetas or Agtas or Negritos or Andamanese (of the Andaman Island, India), they are the first to reach several exotic Islands of the archipelago and called it home. This was approximately 15,000-3,000 B.C. (Original indigenous native man of the East Indies and of the island continent which is now known as Australia). Within these times the Aetas where nomadic because of the changes of weather and food resources. They traveled thr ...
FLORES tiny people/giant lizards Flores is one of the lesser-known islands of Indonesia, and the only wholly Roman Catholic island in the predominantly Muslim nation. At one time vast territories in what are now neighboring Malaysia and Indonesia were part of the Portuguese Empire. As the Netherlands arose as an independent nation freed from the Spanish Empire, the reformed protestant Dutch pushed the old religion Portuguese out of several of the Spice Islands, at the same time the British leveraged the Portuguese out of coastal areas of Malacca, and Malaya. For centuries, as the Portuguese were expelled from Asian territory after territory, many of the native Eurasian, or “Black Portuguese,” residents of those defunct political entities found refuge on Flores, which remained under the Portuguese flag until 1859. This continuous eastward human movement concentrated the Christian religious fervor of the former East Indies on Flores, which now boasts a particularly picturesque version of Roman Catholici ...
Today In History. English Captain William Bligh and 18 others, cast adrift from the HMS Bounty seven weeks before, reach Timor in the East Indies after traveling nearly 4,000 miles in a small, open boat. On April 28, Fletcher Christian, the master's mate on the Bounty, led a successful mutiny against Captain Bligh and his supporters. The British naval vessel had been transporting breadfruit saplings from Tahiti for planting on British colonies in the Caribbean. The voyage was difficult, and ill feelings were rampant between the captain, officers, and crew. Bligh, who eventually would fall prey to a total of three mutinies in his career, was an oppressive commander and insulted those under him. On April 28, near the island of Tonga, Christian and 25 petty officers and seamen seized the ship. The captain and 18 of his crew were set adrift in a small boat with 25 gallons of water, 150 pounds of bread, 30 pounds of pork, six quarts of rum, and six bottles of wine. By setting the captain and his officers adrif ...

Indi Orlando (Izabella Pajonk) is an artist who cyclically travels around the world. The trails of her tours lead from Silesia and Cracow’s Kazimierz, through Italy and Near East, as far as distant India and Nepal. On every route she is accompanied by her inseparable diary – a camera, with the use of which she records, creates and stimulates traces, whose processed image can be found in her digital diary, in oil painting and notes published here and there. You can also see them in paper and online journals, books, as well as Polish and foreign galleries. Works of Izabella Pajonk function as integral entities, at times forming larger visual and quasi-literary cycles (e.g. “In quest of mandala”, “Vivere”, “Laterna magica in a labyrinth with arcades”, “Singer”) and the textual caption itself is not – which is essential – a commentary, but one of the elements of artistic activity. Izabella Pajonk's artistic oeuvre concentrates on the bonds and scars of the visible world, which becom ...

Buddhism is historically the most important religion — historically, not philosophically — because it was the most tremendous religious movement that the world ever saw, the most gigantic spiritual wave ever to burst upon human society. There is no civilisation on which its effect has not been felt in some way or other. The followers of Buddha were most enthusiastic and very missionary in spirit. They were the first among the adherents of various religions not to remain content with the limited sphere of their Mother Church. They spread far and wide. They travelled east and west, north and south. They reached into darkest Tibet; they went into Persia, Asia Minor; they went into Russia, Poland, and many other countries of the Western world. They went into China, Korea, Japan; they went into Burma, Siam, the East Indies, and beyond. When Alexander the Great, through his military conquests, brought the Mediterranean world in contact with India, the wisdom of India at once found a channel through which to ...
