  • Notes 
    • When he got married in 1918 Johannes is registered as a smith. Moved from Noordwijkerhout to Roosendal on May 17th 1921 and to the Hague on Feb 1 1924. When he moved the Hague he had started selling bicycles (rijwielhandelaar).

      On 1939-03-10 John registered the bicycle brand RABUR from the van der Raadt/van den Burg bicycle factory in the Hague. During the war he would smuggle messages to the reistance in the frames.

      They had a house on 321 Laan van Meerdervoort, above the bicycle factory. John had built a secret wall behind the furnace. There was a nazi across the street, who the boys with shoot at with bb guns, uncle Louie smoothed out the drama. The family also had to put up nazi officers.

      After the war Holland was very poor. The business was ruined because of the confiscation of the merchandise. He thought he had to start all over again. After visiting his daughter Maria in Canada in 1948, they liked it very much, and he decided to start over in Canada instead.
