Oslo. Know the folks? (2)

The ship is the Stavangerfjord, no prizes if you guessed so. But here's one for Mrs Tonga: can she tell the two girls apart?
The man above Crown-prince Olav's shoulder I know (it's not written anywhere I swear), that's yacht designer Johan Anker, a good friend of the ''Kromp.''

Hi Stein, I will ask her - she is out at the moment, maybe giving advanced swimming lessons to the little turtles from the safety of a canoe... I will check when she returns

Stein, the turtles are back on the shore having a rest; I have an answer for you from Mrs Tonga. The Princess Astrid is the one near the water dancing about and her older sister is the one being more 'regal' in the centre of the picture. She also made the observation that little has changed and Mrs Ferner is still the one likely to be dancing about, whilst Mrs. Lorentzen is possibly a little more 'reserved' (Jester)

Sounds like a relieable analysis of the iconographic do***entation. Personally I have no way of telling, but on reflection I see that dealing with turtles may give you more of an eye for behaviour, rather than facial features.
Noting what must be NAL officers saluting on the right, I wonder about the correctness of saluting with a stiff hand to the cap by civillians. Looks a bit strange to me. Many here wore a merchant navy officer's cap, were you instructed to give a military salute to royals? I seem to remember pictures with the hats under the arm with the British majesties nearby? Regards, Stein.
