Yes, the USS Vulcan was in the same exact convoy my dad's ship, USS Charles Carroll (APA-28) was in on the way to invade North Africa in 1942.  (Reference the book, "Attack Transport USS Charles Carroll" written by Kenneth Goldman, available on line through Amazon)

All four of them were good ships.  Except maybe the Ajax.  A ship doesn't get a name like "Benjo Maru" for nothing...
