It could be he was a merchant marine as my grandfather Jan Hart. My grandmother told me he was MIA in WWII but I have recently found out that he lived, remarried and had four other children. I never got to know him though sadly. Research the Royal Netherlands Steamship Co. My grandfather Jan works for them. He went to Curacao as well. They went all over the world. There are many other similar companies I understand. Jans fathers name was Hendrik and I think he worked in the shipwork as well. Jan was born in Den Helder. Maybe they are related.
