The company was Canatlantic Ltd, a subsidary of Transatlantic Carriers Ltd. My Ocean Ships 1964 has the funnel colours a green with black top separated by white band. I assume the white band was discontinued

I knew a 'caxton' in 1946, she was a liberty ship & was in the same co. as the 'baskerville' when we both sailed to newfound land on the newsprint run.
