I had a look at Naval-history.net (http://www.naval-history.net/xGM-Chrono-10DD-53R-HMS_Redoubt.htm) and this vessel was probably docked on that date. (There is error in date on the webpage - year 1944 twice, but the first 1944 is actually 1943).
According to this source, HMS Redoubt sustained serious structural damage below waterline by collision with a whale on Feb 1st, 1943. Dome for submarine detection equipment and pitometer log were damaged. She was detached from convoy and following temporary repairs at Casablanca she sailed to Gibraltar for permanent repair, reaching her destination on Feb 10th, 1943. Under repair for the whole March.
