RMS Olympic BL24990_021

RMS OLYMPIC, White Star Line. View of the boat deck, looking aft, showing lifeboats and funnels. The Olympic was the first of a class of luxurious express transatlantic ocean liners, and entered service with the White Star Line in 1911 as the largest cruise liner in the world. Sister ship of the RMS Titanic, she was the only one of the class to prove a success, serving until 1935. After the Titanic sank in 1912, her stokers went on strike until sufficient lifeboats were provided for all passengers and crew. The ship was then refitted and additional safety measures installed. In 1914 the Olympic was requisitioned as a troopship, served in the Gallipoli campaign in 1915, and brought US troops to Europe in 1917. She returned to civilian service in 1920. Photographed by Bedford Lemere, Southampton, October 1921

Models of SS and RMS Britannic BL22639_002

Models of the SS Britannic and the RMS Britannic, photographed by Bedford Lemere and Company in May 1914. The smaller SS Britannic was launched by White Star Line in 1874 and scrapped in 1903. Her primary role was the carriage of immigrant passengers across the Atlantic between Liverpool and New York. The second White Star ship to bear the name Britannic was an Olympic-class ocean liner launched in February 1914 as a sister ship of RMS Titanic. Like her namesake, she too was built by Harland and Wolff as a transatlantic passenger liner, but following the outbreak of the First World War she was requisitioned as a hospital ship and became HMHS Britannic (His Majesty's Hospital Ship) and was sunk in 1916 after striking a mine
