    aha she was a sister ship to the Titanic and some of here interior trim is still in use in english buildings
    my grandfather went to war on this ship
    he always joked that the titanic took him to france but we realised his joke many years later when we grew up
    he said when he saw the name of the ship he knew he was in trouble
    but he survived
    just as well he was not old enough to have been their
    its a wonder my great grandmother never sued the kaiser
