The bells were mispelled,from launching they displayed an extra H,your bell is authentic.Somewhere I have a photo of the mispelled name.

I joined her in Aalborg whilst she was still fitting out and did the maiden voyage and a further 6 months,she was an absolute delight to sail on.Fast,clean and beautiful.

The bell was spelt the Danish way if I remember the matter correctly, Mila whom I met many time's was a good man to work for and certainly knew his stuff when it came to ship design and what he wanted out of them. It was a pity that the Bank's owned most of the vessel's.
