I just checked my info for HX 301 again, and notice there's no Sydney section. I also tried to count the ships listed, and there seems to be less than 130 (my eyes got kind of crossed, so I couldn't come up with an exact number, though I counted several times, getting a different number every time) - is it, perhaps, possible, that the Sydney section was not included in the Advance Sailing Telegram at all? Unfortunately, I don't have the Commodore's notes for this convoy; it would probably say in there, whether Curacao (and/or other ships) joined at sea.
