 Defensively Equipped Merchant Ships - D.E.M.S.

During the war, merchant ships were provided with defensive armaments and as shortages of naval personnel made it impossible to place a full compliment of naval gunnery ratings in every vessel, the army augmented the numbers. The army personnel on the Fort Longueuil were from the Royal Artillery 6th Maritime Regiment.

 Due to a strict allied interpretation of the "Articles of War", naval D.E.M.S. personnel were designated "deck hands" or "supernumeraries" because if they had been classified as military, the vessel would have been classed as a warship. The naval crew aboard the Fort Longueuil are recorded as "deck hands" in the ship's crew list.

A total of 2,713 Royal Navy Sailors and 1,222 members of the Maritime Regiments, Royal Artillery died aboard merchant ships during the Second World War.
