Nickname: "Bloedhond" (Bloodhound), because of the pouches under his eyes.
Father of  E.W.H. Nieuwenhuisen (#2432).
Also W. Nieuwenhuisen and A. van Wagensveld, can not confirm that their uncle has indeed cmmanded  a submarine. So it seems that the report that this officer commanded a submarine is incorrect.
