  • Hospital Ship Britannic
    This website tells the story of "the most beautiful hospital ship that ever sailed the seas":the Britannic. Built and launched after the tragic loss of her sistership -the famous Titanic- as one of the finest and safest ocean liners of her era, the Britannic never crossed the Atlantic carrying the rich and the poor to the New World. She was converted into a hospital ship and made six voyages to the Mediterranean, evacuating thousands of wounded soldiers from the battlefields of the Eastern Front during World War I. Considered more "unsinkable" than the Titanic due to the modifications of her design, she was lost in only 55 minutes after a violent explosion. The Britannic was the largest British ship lost during the conflict and remains the largest sunken ocean liner in the world.

  • ss Great Britain
    The steam ship Great Britain is a unique survival from Victorian times: the world's first iron hulled, screw propeller-driven, steam-powered passenger liner, and the only surviving 19th century example of the type. When launched in 1843 she was twice the tonnage of any previous ship, and the combination of revolutionary features in her design had a seminal influence on virtually all modern ships.

As a culmination of cultural, political and technological ideologies of the 1940's and 50's, she clearly represents the best and brightest that this country had to offer.
