If any warship could be described as a rust bucket, the Serdang would be it. Completed before the turn of the century, she was converted to a minelayer in 1921. She was most likely at Surabaya when war broke out. She apparently served principally as a torpedo repair ship, and was scuttled 6 March 1942 near Surabaya to avoid capture.
