HMS Worcestershire

HMS Worcestershire was originally a passenger ship, but was requisitioned by the Admiralty and converted to an armed merchant cruiser in 1939. The Worcestershire was damaged by a U-boat on 3rd April 1941. It survived, continuing to Liverpool.  

This website, dedicated to the history of German U-boats, provides more information, and the Imperial War Museum archive holds an image of the ship at Greenock in 1943.
