If you have the exact date, there is a chance one might find the sought for information in an online archive of a Danish newspaper. The Politiken has a complete archive onlne, but you have to buy a subscription to view it, and since one does not know whether the inames of these fellows were reported, that probably is probably not worth the money and the effort. The Danish National Archive has some material on B & W, but fishing out what is relevant may be difficult.

Maybe this man was present, he was prime minister at the time; https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Madsen-Mygdal Here is his cabinet: http://www.stm.dk/_p_5451.html The man on the left in the following link is Niels Munck in the fifties as then director of B & W, but he was certainly high up in 1938 when the former director was just dead. There seems to have been no Danish director duing the war. http://bjoerna.dk/neva/Burmeister.htm The King: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_X_of_Denmark

"Transilvania" (1938, 6,642 grt) 410pass in 3 classes; 18knots. Very interesting history. Built for Constanta-Piraeus-Beirut-Haifa-Alexandria service. During WW2 laid up at Istanbul to prevent requisitioning and later arrested by Turkish authorities to forestall use in German military evacuations. Post WW2 Constanta - Marseilles service and eventually Med and Black Sea cruising - "The Mediterranean Swan". Withdrawn 1975. Sank while laid up at Galati and broken up.

I did a Black Sea cruise on the Transilvania in 1972, very basic compared with today's ships but still very enjoyable.
