The germans invaded Holland on May 9. By the next Day he was attached to the military staff in Teeland a town in Southern Holland to maintain communications. A the roads As Well As the town we were in were bombed but i managed to keep things going a he writes. The drive had started on thursday night by the next tuesday the dutch forces were forced to leave Teeland. The Engineer said that the situation at this time was hopeless. He and his wife packed a few bags and crossed the Scheldt River with some French officers. A half hour later the town they had left was completely destroyed by German bombers. Then began the flight with the other refugees across Belgium and into Fiance. A it was impossible to get food and we saved All we had with us for the two children a the letter says. The Little family travelled in any Way it could sometimes by automobile sometimes by foot. They slept in barns and stables and half destroyed hotels. Always overhead the German bombers roared and the nazi motorized army came driving on and on just a few Miles behind. A French army truck took them about twelve Kilometres beyond Dunker que which was then burning from the bombings. The red glow of the fire could be seen at night. A we saw refugees everywhere and Many terrible sights which i shall never forget a he said. After going a few Miles further Down the coast Contact was made with the British g. H. Q. And arrangements were made to Send the family to England. But on the morning they were to leave the germans began a huge air attack. Wave after wave of German planes came Over and bombed endlessly. A the British a or. Akkerman relates a were Sublime. Soldiers took off their own helmets to protect the j they remained in shelters All Day and that night with the Aid of the British soldiers they managed to get to a boat on the Channel. After reaching England or. Akkerman again went into the service of the dutch government with its Headquarters in London. He expresses Hope that he would get to come Hack to the United states soon. He wants to join the faculty of the University or get into some other engineering work. The dutch government has promised him a leave of absence.
