High-quality 1917 footage of the Royal Netherlands Navy

Of course, the Netherlands was neutral during the first world war, but it's navy still had a job to do in protecting its territorial integrity. Here's some really nice (for 1917) film that includes submarines, torpedo boats, and armored cruisers. Note the large Netherlands flag on the SS sails, and the white recognition bands on the stacks of the ACR. I wonder if any 1/1250s of Dutch ships of this period have ever been produced.... I know that Rhenania did a couple of beautiful post WWI destroyers (I have them), but that's all I can think of.
