AMY TIMES MARCH 26TH 1928

A ‘Q’ ship was a smallish warship disguised as a merchant ship which went hunting German Submarines.  If you search these records you will note that many of the losses from the U-Boats (U-Boot or Unterseeboot) were not always from torpedoes, the submarine would often sink merchant ships by gunfire or the placing explosives on board. The ‘Q’ boat would wait until the U Boat was close then run up the White Ensign, and attack. Highly risky since the U Boat commanders were suspicious an would often keep their distance.
