MENTOR: Built on the VOC yard of Zeeland in 1789 for the Chamber of the VOC in Zeeland. Tonnage 560 ton. Sailed from Batavia on 22 November 1794, with a cargo on board with a total value of 61.361 Dutch Guilder. She was under command of Capt. Ulke Barendsz with onboard 50 persons. (I believe this MENTOR is also depicted on the British Indian Ocean Territory stamp issued in 1999 60p sg 229.
Not any MENTOR is mentioned in Rowan Hackman's book on the "Ships of the East India Company". The year on the stamp is the same as when the MENTOR was built.)
