Just discovered that Thor Dahl also had a whale catcher Thoris, ex Nordkyn, ex Buttercup, built 1941, bought 1956, sold 1969. So this must be the war time corvette Buttercup.

Again, Jan-Olof informed me a while back that Buttercup became mercantile Nordkyn in 1946 (as per Lloyd's?). says she was renamed Nordkyn already from 1942 while in service as a corvette for the Norwegian Navy. Is that correct?

I've noticed there's quite a bit of information at U-boat net with regard to the Norwegian (ex British) corvettes that differs from what can be found in Norwegian sources. All my books only refer to this corvette as Buttercup during the war.

It would be nice if I could get this cleared up, so that I can correct my text.
