Name the Ship Game

RMS Olympic

Recommended Posts

No it doesn't seem to  have been. If Wikipedia is correct it was actually a passenger liner that was torpedoed by a submarine in 1916...she had a sister ship the Egypt who looked similar who did work as a hospital ship during the war... I suppose it could be either one of them...they look VERY similar.

She was not torpedoed, she sunk after the collision in bay Biskay and later become very visited for one purpouse. She indeed was hospital ship during ww1. Enough hints, one of you was veeeeery close already.

Just woke up to find that I'm a winner :-D Well I don't know if it will be easy or hard. I did remove the name ON the ship in 3 spots...hopefully the photoshop job isn't too bad but I thought she was a rather neat ship.  I will give hints in 12 hours if no correct answers.
