2635 Disguised Ships-During WW2, British disguised some warships as small merchant ships because German subs stayed away from them. Sailors even donned costumes, so they wouldn't look like military when viewed through a periscope. Some of them dressed as women and walked around on deck snuggling with other dudes. Some dressed with fake parrots, or in blackface. Once a U-boat was spotted they would act like they began to abandon ship while making a show of running into each other and tripping and falling. When the subs surfaced, the hidden guns would destroyed them. At least 70 German submarines actually fell for this, and 14 of them were sunk.
