Response to M.S. Tegelberg
According to the information I have available, Tegelberg did not come into BMWT service until 1942. Between 1940 and 1942, she was employed on the socalled "Africa Line" of the KPM. Java was one of her regular stops. Tegelberg sailed from New York to the UK and was converted to a troop transport at Liverpool between June 16, 1942 and September 28, 1942, and sailed on her first trip in her new role on September 30, 1942. She saw extensive service in the Mediterranean from November, 1942.
You mentioned Tegelberg transporting Aussie troops and sighting the Vichy-French convoy. May I ask what your source for this information is?
