Although this MG is showing a Dutch number-plate — it is, like mine, Glacier white, a RHD — and, apart from that ghastly, door-mounted overtaking mirror, it is exactly like my 1970 MG MGB GT ... which I purchased in 1970 ... and still sailing through every annual MOT test and running well.

The Submission of Prince Dipo Negoro to General De Kock

The Submission of Prince Dipo Negoro to General De Kock is an oil painting on canvas painted by Nicolaas Pieneman between 1830 and 1835. It depicts General Hendrik Merkus de Kock's capture of Prince Diponegoro in 1830, which signaled the end of the Java War (1825–1830). The painting, commissioned by De Kock, shows Diponegoro abandoning his followers and submitting peacefully, in what the art historian Werner Krauss describes as recognition that "de Kock's stern action is for the best of the Javanese".
