Source Note: DT, UK-KeNA, Adm. 137/1437. The list is undated; the date was taken from the earliest date on which a ship was scheduled to arrive at Gibraltar. As the preparer of the list did not note that any U.S. vessels were yet at Gibraltar, this list must have been generated before 8 August. The place is derived from the fact that the list was prepared for the British Admiralty.
