SPY SHIP: HIGHJACKED

The 2456-ton steamship SS La Rin became 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.
