Retirement different in various Wikipedia articles
Not having time to research this, I still want to point out the seemingly contradicting infos on the end of Conrad Helfrich’s career:
Here (English) it says: "He remained in command until his retirement from the navy on 1 January 1949."
The same date is mentioned in the German article, but there he isn’t called Lieutenant Admiral: "Vizeadmiral Helfrich trat am 1. Januar 1949 aus den Diensten der niederländischen Marine aus."
But the Dutch article says: "Op 1 oktober 1948 ging hij met pensioen." meaning: "He retired on October 1st, 1948."
The English article seems to have been translated from the Dutch one, but later edited on this point, so it could well be a valid correction. Unfortunately, the reference link added in there doesn’t work anymore. Geke (talk) 08:20, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
