I bought a roll of B&W film in a drugstore in Leeuwarden.
I exposed the film and now I want to develop it.
The thing is the cassette just says 'black & white film'... no other info.

So what is the default chemical to use to develop the roll?

E6?

no further info printed on the casing anywhere.
just in case any of our Dutch forum members read this - its HEMA
Black & White.

thanks for the reply.

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Are you planning on developing it yourself?

If so you could cut off the first 200mm of the roll and develop it as for an average 200 iso film. There may be more information printed above the sprocket holes.

Go here:

http://www.apug.org/forums/

and search for HEMA. I did that and a number of threads came up in the Nederlandse forums. I don't read Dutch, but I think someone was saying that HEMA is Ilford FP4+.

Oh and also.. i think the film is 400/27

In which case it isn't FP4+, but it could be HP5+. If you can't get an answer on APUG then you won't get an answer anywhere...
