History of the Hunter Q-Ship

The Hunter Q-Ship – British Navy represents a merchant ship, armed as a schooner, built at the beginning of the last century and mainly used as a collier. The Hunter was firstly owned by the British Merchant Navy. Then the Royal Navy took it over for its sailing qualities especially fit for the North Seas and decided to transform it into a Q-ship, when war broke out. As all other Q-ships it underwent changes at the dockyard of Queenstown, Ireland (that’s why they were called Q-ship). It was equipped with false structures that concealed its deck weaponry. This structure could be easily removed and the hidden deck guns could be used to fire against the enemy, especially submarines.
