    WSL Commodores

    Hey there ! I'm reading again Hull Down wrote by Sir Bertram Hayes and there's one thing I don't really understand. On chapter XVII (p.277) Hayes wrote : I always thought that Smith was the last Commodore before Hayes but those lines are telling anonther story. What do we know about that ?

    White Star/Cunard/Carnival

    Hello! So I've actually been doing a lot of research and such on this infamous Shipping company for a while now - no particular reason, just curious!

    Chapels on board White Star Line ships

    I have an early brochure for the MV Britannic that features a photo of a chapel among the images of her interiors. The brochure's description of it as a 'chapel' is perhaps a bit hyperbolic, as it appears to have been little more than an altar with a crucifix that was set up within a larger...

    White Star Fleet List

    Yesterday, in another thread, I mentioned having posted a White Star fleet list here once upon a time. Having scoured the archives, though, all I can find is a link to a now-defunct web site where that list appeared; it doesn't seem that I ever posted the whole list here. So here it is...
