The book L.L. von Münching "De Nederlandse Koopvaardijvloot in de Tweede Wereldoorlog", volume 2 has a list of armaments for Dutch merchant ships dated late 1942/early 1943 (Appendix 1 of that book, pp. 235-239).
According to this list, Bloemfontein was armed with:
1 x 4-inch low-angle.
2 x Oerlikon 20 mm
2 double Merlin machineguns.
1 x Lewis machinegun.
When exactly she received this armament, I can't say (my guess would be late 1941).
