Thank you for your enquiry. This is indeed the same vessel as featured in Treedee’s book. Lloyd’s Register of Shipping lists only one vessel of this name around this time. At the time of the voyage described in the book, ownership had changed from Brys & Gylsen Ltd of London who owned it when the painting was done, to Lloyd Royal Belge (Great Britain) Ltd of London, a company that owned two dozen similar vessels. The Normandier traded into Cardiff at times during this period as some of its periodic surveys were done at that port.

Is this the same vessel HL Treedee writes about in his book: "The Strange Ordeal of the Normandier"
The time seems to match. A good read either way.
