Idomeneus had sailed from New York in convoy HN7 on 30 August 1917. After she was hit she was taken in tow by Laburnum and later Poppy and was beached by trawlers in Valensey Bay. Rob Roy escorted the two sloops during their towing. Milewater took over the tow from them, escorted by Right Whale and two trawlers.
