Halcyon Cove is included in the list of Court Line Ships by Middlemiss - External Reference #4, but the exact connection with the company is not clear. We do know that the "Halcyon" prefix was used by Court Line for its tankers. She was launched as Kaizerswaard.
Halcyon Cove had a working life of 21 years starting in 1955 and ending with her being broken up in 1976. During her life she had several changes in name and owner.
