He was also a very good friend of John Lennon. When both Lennon & Yoko Ono wanted to protest against the Vietnam War, Hans Boskamp suggested the idea to hold their first of 2 Bed-Ins for Peace in the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, & personally arranged their stay in the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel.
Boskamp’s real name was Johannes Hendricus Gerardus Hoelscher. His stage name was analogous to his father’s, actor Johan Boskamp, whose birth name was Johan Adriaan Hoelscher.
Boskamp made his debut for the Netherlands in a September 1952 friendly match against Denmark & earned a total of 4 caps, scoring no goals. His final international was a May 1954 friendly match against Switzerland.
After retiring as a footballer, Boskamp became an actor.
