According to "Ships Available to the Enemy in North Waters", published in August 1945 by the Ministry of Economic Warfare, BASEL was under German control. It was reported on 10 August 1944 as being in "Germany/Norway trade", and "escaped to Sweden on 26 April 1945". The vessel was at a UK port (I do not know which port), on 21 September 1945.
From Lloyd's Shipping Index I can tell you that the vessel arrived at Kristiansand on 23 November 1945 from Porsgrunn.
