Its name is (or was) PERUVIAN REEFER. This is the way Lauritzen (and fellow Danes DFDS) used to do it. It could be that she was in the process of being renamed to ORANGE REEFER when you took this shot.

rd77. Thanks very much for this - I thought it might be the case but not convinced enough.

Judging by the heavy oil "tide mark" around her I think this was shortly after she ran aground at full speed off Copenhagen. She ended up going to a yard in Scandinavia for repairs (cannot remember all the details) where I went out to supervise repositioning the engine, straightening the prop shaft and replacing about 3,000 ton of bottom steel. But then there is no JL on the funnel....

I think the photo was taken when she was in Layup on the River Fal, Cornwall.
