Question WW2 - Empire Lugard and the Dutch Suriname

Hi all

on the 13 Sept 1942 the Empire Lugard and the dutch vessel Suriname were both sunk west of Grenada, W.I. by U-558 whilst in convoy TAG-5. Survivors were picked up by the Norwegian vessel Vilja and an "American Escort".

Can anybody throw any light on the name of the "American Escort" please.

Thanks in advance

Regards

NigelC
