Convoy TE.3: Gibr 11.11.1942 -> 17.11.1942 Bône
Convoy ET.1: Algi 18.11.1942 -> 20.11.1942 Gibr
I only found 2 convoys matching the date of attack;
but TE.3 seems to be late, as ARADAM attacked very early, at 03:58/16.
May be the target had left Bône on 16.11. to reach convoy ET.1 (destinated to Gibraltar).
Following Arnold Hague convoy database, TE.3 had only 3 big ("Ocean") Steamers. No losses. ET.1 had 3 big Steamers (means > 5000 grt).
