RMS Empress of Britain, ocean liner

The RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Empress of Britain, an ocean liner built between 1928 and 1931, owned by the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company. The ship provided a transatlantic passenger service from spring to autumn between Canada and Europe from 1931 to 1939. In her time she was the largest, fastest and most luxurious ship on the England-Canada route. She was torpedoed in October 1940, being the largest liner lost during the Second World War and the largest ship sunk by a U-boat. Photograph by Ralph Ponsonby Watts
