According to FaktaomFartyg the Dutch company was part of Fred Olsen.

Thanks for your comment. Interestingly she is still wearing the Fred Olsen markings in this shot, but my Lloyds Shipping Index of the time definitely says she is Dutch owned.

Originally owned by the norwegian Fred Olsen Line. In the summer season it sailed between Hirtshals in Denmark and southern Norway among other places Kristiansand. In the winter season it moved south to more warm waters.. :-)
