100 years of LUSITANIA




LUSITANIA is one of the most talked about CUNARD passenger ships, for the good, the bad and the reasons we will never know, my thoughts are today with the families affected by the sinking of the ship exactly one hundred years ago, after been torpedoed by a German submarine. Cobh and Liverpool remembered the people that died on that terrible day. LUSITANIA was for a brief period of time the largest passenger ship in the World at 31.550 G.T., she was built by the prestigious JOHN BROWN shipyards and launched in 1907, one of the sleekest and most remarkable liners ever to have sailed lies at the bottom of the sea with so many untold stories and surely keeper of so many secrets.
