Anybody know where the green lights of britannic were located at I can never picture in my mind what It looked like with those lights on at night probably like a UFO ha ha.

They were beneath the promenade deck.

How it looked, watch the night images in the movie Britannic, one of a few things they made right in the movie.

Yes, the two red crosses at the bulkhead of the boat deck level.
This was to make sure that in the night she was still identified as an Hospital ship.

Did the lights fill up the whole cross or were there just lights on the outline of the cross?I believe the red crosses that lit up were the two on the very top deck right.

Greg, I don't mean to be a stick in the mud, but did you have permission to post that Britannic SCREENCAP? I'm afraid it's still under protection of copyright.

>>no but by all means remove it now he has seen it<<

My colleagues have advised me that since this is a screencap, Fair Use applies. However, I will note...for the sake of keeping the legal eagles happy...that this screencap comes from the movie "Britannic."

Matthew, as I said the two red crosses at the bulkhead of the boat deck level which are the two at the very top.

Thanks but did the light bulbs fill in the whole cross or the outline of the cross.

The red crosses on the boat deck level were glass-panelled.

Ioannis:
I have no reason to doubt that you are correct about the lighted crosses being "glass panelled" but I have never encountered that information in my research. Do you have a reference that I may have overlooked?

Bob,

I am not quite sure but I think I came across it in one of the expedition reports. Not sure if it was one of the Greek or the British dives. Would need more time to go though my stuff.
But I know that also Mark Chirnside mentioned it in his book The Olympic Class Ships.

And if I am not mistaken also a survivor or someone who travelled before November 1916 on her mentioned them. But not sure about this.

Kind regards
Ioannis
