Sadly, Norm, that is not so. RFA GRAY RANGER was torpedoed in 1942 on Convoy QP14. Her master, Captain Douglas Gausden was awarded the DSO and I had the privilege to serve under his command as a cadet in RFA FORT BEAUHARNOIS in 1955.I heard it was to confuse u-boat commanders when lining up thier torpedoes. They'd think she was on a different tack, fire and (hopefully) miss. We will never know if it actually worked, as none of the Rangers was torpedoed.
