After departing Liverpool Dec.1943, the Adrastus collided, whilst in convoy, with another ship. Can anyone come up with the name of the other ship?

Thanks for that link, Volunteer, I've only just picked it up more than a year after posting! My interest in this incident was because I should have been in the Adrastus but had been unable to join on account of sickness.
One of the 4 middies in the Adrastus, at the time of the collision, had been a schoolmate of mine. He had the misfortune to fall down that drydock in St. John N.B. and spent a few weeks in hospital there. I went away in another ship and on account of us both being on leave at the same time, after those separate voyages, we sailed together on our next ship on a trip that lasted 17 months.
