Convoy Mystery

According to Rohwer the vessels Amakura (br) and Stad Amsterdam (nl) were both sunk on August 25,1942 in the Caribbean. Both are claimed to have been stragglers from convoy TAW 15. The TAW convoys sailed the route Trinidad -> Curacao -> Key West, i.e. a northbound route.

However, looking in Lloyd's War Losses, it becomes apparent that both these vessels where on a southbound voyages, to be more specific:

Amakura - Liverpool -> Key West -> Trinidad -> Demerara
Stad Amsterdam - Liverpool -> NYC -> Key West -> Trinidad -> Demerara

It seems to me that these vessels couldn't have been in convoy TAW 15, nor straggling from it.

Can anyone shed some light on this mystery?
