During WW1, the problem of providing ships to man a blockade of the "gap" between the UK, Iceland and Greenland had been solved using armed merchant cruisers (AMCs). The same approach was followed during WW2 and many merchant ships were requisitioned for this purpose.

This page provides a list of these ships.
