The next year, in 1667, the Dutch under command of De Ruyter executed a retaliatory expedition, and dealt the English navy a heavy blow at the Raid on the Medway (also known as the Battle of Chatham), in effect ending the Second Anglo-Dutch War.
The raid led to a quick end to the war and a favourable peace for the Dutch.
It was the worst defeat in the Royal Navy's history!
Jan Zumbach and Squadron Leader Tadeusz Kawalecki, spent the final month of the war as prisoners of war.
Franek relates - They were arrested by what looked like Yugo troops, and taken to Arnhem, and then sent to a Po W camp.
