The ships of the Honourable East India Company of Britain
An East Indiaman was a ship owned or chartered by the East India Companies of the European trading powers in the 17th to 19th century. Many of the ships were quite heavily armed and painted to resemble war ships. An attacker could not be sure whether gunports were real or merely dummies. In the battle of Pulo Aula in 1804 an English merchant ships convoy even succeeded in scaring off a flotilla of French Navy ships.
