Thanks for this, and indeed many of the other pictures, Paul!

From the Netherlands Navy commemorative roll:
"Hos, C. (1909) ltz.2 18-07-1942 Hr.Ms. Tjerk Hiddes"

I can't place the death of Lieutenant C. Hos in conjunction with the fate of torpedo-boat destroyer HMS Tjerk Hiddes. It left the UK in August 1942 for the Indian Ocean, returning in October 1944.
Another sailor killed during training? Possibly he got ill and died?
