Could be Jaap, but SALVO sailed without. Very unlikely it was removed when in British Service. That means ASTRID (1) didn't had one.

Henk - I should get some more sleep - you are right, it is most unlikely that the steelwork would have been removed. This means that the photo of KESTREL must be post-WW2 and both of the ASTRID photos are ASTRID (2)
