Hi Lars!

Not sure what you mean. According to her plans Britannic R&W room must have 3 windows. A big one and two smaller one there were the bulkhead forms like a U. The big window was in the middle. Sorry, difficult to explain. I am not English.

Hi Ioannis,

I'm not English too:p I'm trying to recreate The A Deck of Britannic. According to the Deck plans of Britannic, the following picture must be the R&W room.

Hi Lars!

I am also not sure how it is called. :)
However this was not planned for Britannic! Only Titanic was having it and the Olympic before her 1912/13 refit. Britannic, like Olympic after refit, would have a wall looking like the wall aft were the fireplace was.

Hi again!

So far as I know Britannic must have also a fireplace on the same place were Olympic and Titanic were having one.

Yes, the "thing" on Olympic was replaced by a wall. While Titanic was in service it was decided that the R&W room was too big. Only a few people use it. So it was decided to cut the one alcove of the R&W room and place there 4 1st class suites, which were behind the forward 1st class staircase and the R&W room. This was then done during the Olympic refit, were she also got also a Cafe Parisien on B deck and a few other things.

Around 1912/13 Olympic was looking more and more like Titanic in some places.
The A la carte restaurant on B-deck was extended on the port side until to the hull. And on starboard she got a Cafe Parisien which was a popular place on Titanic. If you ask me, Olympics Cafe Parisien was better.

I have another question:

@ Britannic's Boat Deck, The Reading & Writing room's Raised roof. The deckplans say that is has a straight line but the A Deck Plan shows something else.

Don't look @ the colours i'm trying to make them better but only look @ the red mark

Lars,

sorry, I am not quite sure what you mean. So far as I can see you plan of A deck is correct, going by her plans.
On port side of the boat deck (over the 4 or 5 suites in front of the R&W room)there was placed a new room on Britannic, which would be the Childrens Play Room. Maybe you mean that?

Correction: I wrote "The wall you marked in red would be on boat deck the aft wall of the childrens play room." The aft wall of the childrens play room on boat deck would be in one line with the aft wall of the gymnasium on starboard and the 2nd funnel outline. So overlapping a little the roof of the R&W room but only a few feet.
Maybe it was that what you mean?
