The escort was reinforced by the V and W class destroyer tanker Hahira on 3 November. U-89 torpedoed the convoy commodore's freighter Jeypore after sunset on 3 November while U-132 torpedoed Dutch freighter Hobbema and British freighters Empire Lynx and Hatimura. U-132 is believed to have been destroyed by the kiloton-range detonation of the ammunition cargo of the latter ship.

U-89 torpedoed British freighter Daleby shortly before the convoy escort was reinforced by the USCG Treasury Class Cutter Ingham and the Wickes class destroyers Leary and Schenck from Iceland.
