Correct! De Zeven Provincien was bombed by the Netherlands (reported as accidentally as the bombing was meant to scare the mutineers not hit the ship) as a result of a mutiny attempt by the crew. After this incident the ship was renamed Soerabaja as it was felt such a famous name as De Zeven Provincien could not be associated with a ship that had a mutiny.
