She's one of the 'Assurance' class naval salvage tugs, of which two, ANTIC and DEXTEROUS, were chartered to L.Smit & Co., Rotterdam from 1943 to shortly after the end of the war in 1945.

Concur with Graham, I think she is the ' Antic (former name Ant, renamed Antic in 1942 before being launched). Manned by a civilian crew from the Netherlands from June 1943 until 1945. Became a Royal Navy Fleet Tug in 1946

Indeed Antic, thanks! Pennant A141. The reason for the 'out flagging' to the Netherlands would be the lack of masters and crew in the UK.

Gijsha,

Lack of masters and crew in the UK and also might from the AVAILABLITY of Dutch masters and crew who had escaped the Netherlands?
