The British schooner Q.9. Mary B. Mitchell was a decoy ship who was believed to have sunk her first German submarine in 1917. She was built by Paul Rogers in 1892 at Carrickfergus and was owned by Lord Penrhyn. She was requisitioned in 1916 by the Admiralty to serve as a Q-ship until 1919, out of Falmouth.
