Members - Alphabetical Order
Remarks
1. Dutch Military Mission
After the forcible opening of Japan by Commodore Perry in 1854 it was decided to modernise the Japanese fleet. To do this, orders were placed for modern steam powered warships. The first of which was the Soembing, a gift from King William III. of the Netherlands, which was renamed the Kankō Maru. To train Japanese sailors in the use of these new and powerful ships the Nagasaki Naval Training Center was established literally right at the entrance of Dejima, to maximize interaction with Dutch naval know-how. Head of the first mission was Pels Rijcken.

2. Dutch Military Mission
