Battle beween the Nabab of Decca's army and forces of the city of Assam. 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. The Nabab went into battle with the king of Assam and the shipwrecked sailors joined the fighting.Please contact Universiteitsbibliotheek / Universiteit van Amsterdam for reuse and copyrights.
