As ZEELEEUW, evacuated to UK in 6/1940 and served with Belgian flag and crew as a salvage vessel with the Liverpool & Glasgow Salvage Association (in full: The Liverpool and Glasgow Association for the Protection of Commercial Interests as Respects Wrecked and Damaged Property) under Admiralty direction.

Also reported towed 'Gooseberry' and 'Mulberry' sections to Normandy in 1944 (though not listed in John Winser's The D-Day Ships).
Presumably returned to Belgium in 1945.
