Shipwrecked sailors from the ship Terschelling in the army procession of the Nabab [viceroy] of Decca.
On the home journey from Batavia the Terschelling ran onto a sandbank off the coast of Bengal in 1661. Some of the crew struggled to safety on an island off the coast and managed to reach dry land a month later. After some wandering they ended up in the army of the Nabab of Decca, who was a field marshall of the Great Mogul.Please contact Universiteitsbibliotheek / Universiteit van Amsterdam for reuse and copyrights.
