Jaegers Combitank

The Jaegers homepage is still off the air, however I had already checked out Jaegers Combitank BV, the Rotterdam subsidiary (formerly Dordrecht I believe). The local website is unavailable too, or it may have been suspended - Fortunately the Vlootschouw pages show the local Jaeger variant, for instance here: on the page dedicated to tanker vessel ‘Almeria’. This time, the differentiating elements are ‘JC’ (blue initials) and the Dutch national colours (lines around the lozenge).

In my original message I only had to offer a drawing, now there is a photo (still modest – table flag only) confirming this local variant of the Jaegers archivexillum!
See image, original picture found – where else – on German eBay: no.290193777621 (end 2 Jan 2008) put up by “shipflag”, dimensions given as approx. 16 cm x 24 cm.
Not shown on the drawing is the white fimbriation surrounding the lozenge rim in the (Dutch) national colours, so we gain a little extra information.
