Diary of Commander Joseph K. Taussig
Oct 14 
Sunday morning I decided to send the Siddon ahead with the Allen and Tucker as the Aquarius was holding her back. Wadsworth and Cummings remained with Aquarius which ship in present state of sea is making good only 5 knots. The Siddon, Allen and Tucker soon left us out of sight behind them. Later in the day received a wireless message from the C-in-C Queenstown to send one destroyer to scout ahead as far as 53-31 north. So I went ahead with the Wadsworth and passed the Siddon and escort.
