US Plan of Gerard Callenburg in German Service

This plan from a US Recognition magazine of 1944 shows the Gerard Callenburgh, a Dutch destroyer that entered German service as ZH1. Gerard Callenburgh and Tjerk Hiddes were both Isaac Sweers class destroyers that were scuttled during the German invasion of 1940. The Gerard Callenburgh was refloated by the Germans and completed at Hamburg, and briefly served in the German Navy from October 1943 until she was sunk on 8 June 1944. The Tjerk Hiddes wasn't worth repairing. This plan shows her as just over 250ft long, but she was actually much longer, at 344ft 6in on the waterline.
