Assigned to convoy escort duty in the South Atlantic, DD 358 McDougal steamed for Capetown, South Africa, from the Caribbean early in December 43. While battling heavy seas off Cape of Good Hope, she received news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. She returned to Trinidad 30 December; thence, she departed for patrol duty off the South American coast 18 January 1942.
