Hercules Hub Question

I'm sure this has been answered, somewhere, before, but maybe someone can give me the short answer -
I have a mid 50's Hercules, with a B type 3 hub, the kind with a threaded driver.
Since I'm old and weak, I'd like to put a larger cog on the hub.
So, is the hub a standard freewheel thread, and I can just use a cog like those commonly used to convert a regular freewheel bike to a single speed "fixie" ?
Like this :
Is it that simple, or ..........?
We are confronted by insurmountable opportunities ........
