I'm sure many of you have heard of the SS La Rin or you may know of her as the 2456-ton steamship HMS Fidelity (D-57) and was fitted out as a combination decoy "Q" ship and spy vessel used to transport SOE operatives into Nazi-occupied countries. Her last mission saw her revamped into a commando carrier bound for the Far East. Armed with 4-in guns, she went down without any survivors in December 1942.
