Bahh! Gone cross-eyed playing with this in Photoshop to try and pick out the name but I am sure you already tried this Ruud. I think it is down to shape and funnel recognition.

Hi Ruud
A tricky one!
The nearest funnel mark that I can come up with (so far) is Counties Ship Management although this is a C in the centre of the circle - will keep looking!

There looks like 2 names on the bow and as Peter says nearest he can come up with is Counties Ship Management.
Could it be Mulberry Hill launched in Dec 1943 as Fort Brunswick scrapped in Split in 1966 or
Denmark Hill launched May 1944 scrapped in Taiwan 1968

The only earlier one was Tower Hill but no details

She, I would guess, goes back further than WWII.
In the back of my mind, when I look at the funnel colours, I think of Sir Joseph Isherwood and his Arcform design or his longitudinal framing. He, I think, had, for a short time, a line of steamships with a similar funnel logo, but that's a wild guess.
She looks well found. Strictly a cargo ship (two boats), but she has an awning on the fo'c'sle. The Admiralty Cap (?) is distintive. Coal burning, with a hatch trunked behind the bridge?

Counties Ship Management was certainly in operation prior to the Second World War as their funnel mark appears in a booklet that I have dated 1935.
