Dutch equipment driven into the Waddenzee - may 1940

When the Dutch troops retreated from the northern provinces they made use of all transportation they could lay their hands on. In order to prevent the enemy of making use of this equipment it was driven into the Waddenzee - the salty side of the Afsluitdijk - before the troops moved westwards across the Afsluitdijk.
