In the course of his speech in the House of Commons on December 6, 1939, Winston Churchill said:
"We have already armed more than 1,000 merchant ships for self-defensive purposes and the process is continuing with all possible speed. It will not be long before we have 2,000 so armed. These merchant ships, in accordance with the oldest rights of the sea, fire back when they are attacked. The merchant captains and seamen show a resolute disposition to defend themselves, and many duels are fought in which the U-boat, fearing to be damaged and thus be unable to dive or attack, is beaten off."
