I have not run into any after ~25 patrols throughout the 1939-45 period.

No.

Q ships really were a WWI (I think) thing and not very common in WWII.

The US had like 5 for a short time. Only one Q ship in WWII ever met a U-boat, the U-boat won.

That U-Boat was U-123 with Reinhard Hardegen in his second (and last) Operation Drumbeat patrol.

ok thanks. Shame though as I think that they would have made a nice extra thing to watch out for.

Yes there were only a few but one of them played quite a role in ww-2.

Take special note of the "History of Atlantis"

It played an important role in the breaking of the british cypher codes. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
