So somebody else except the said captain was responsible for transporting the
refugees?

Nor was that ever claimed. But without his efforts, none of the refugees would
ever have reached Antwerp.

to Antwerp, where they were rescued by "heroic" Belgians. That's not quite the
way things happened.

I think we both have a point here.
