This match was played in the training centre for customs officers in Kapellen, a small town north of Antwerp. It is not entirely clear to me who was allowed to play. My one source, [1], calls this a “finances match”; I expect that means people working at the ministry of finances. As such, I expect that the Dutch second board must be David Roodzant, rather than his more famous wife Catharina. Admittedly, Loeffler was a lady, too, but this is made explicit in [1]. The match must have been played at the end of 1959, probably in December.
