Hi All...

I've read through a couple of different threads posted several years ago regarding the tanker Augustina. Has there ever been any resolution as to which Japanese DD was the culprit which massacred her crew? So far as I can tell from a cursory read through the various threads is that Augustina's crew apparently witnessed the death of USS Pope some 14-15 miles to the south before being intercepted herself. This DD was apparently one of those screening the Japanese heavy cruisers which sank Exeter and Encounter.
