                   Britain during World War II. Ships joined large
                   convoys to gain protection Naval vessels and air
                   patrols. In all more than 3000 British Merchant
                   ships were sunk or damaged. A majority of the
                   ships sunk were in the Atlantic Ocean. Many were
                   in Atlantic convoys, or stragglers. 1500 ships
                   were sunk by torpedo, mostly from U-boats. 700
                   ships were sunk by air attacks. 420 ships were
                   sunk by mines.}},
