RMS "MAJESTIC" OF WHITE STAR LINE



The RMS "MAJESTIC" was built as the German "BISMARCK" in 1914, the beginning of the first World War delayed the completion of the ship, eventually when the war was over she was turned over to Britain as compensation for the sinking of RMS BRITANNIC, as such she started to be operated by White Star Line under the name of MAJESTIC, she had an impressive 56.551 GT, she became the largest in the world until the introduction of SS "NORMANDIE" in 1935, the ship was scrapped in Scotland in 1940, postcards from my private collection
