Hi!

Recently I heard that Olympic possibly had Green and Cream tiles in her wheelhouse, instead of Red and Cream like Britannic and Titanic had. Is this true? I photos of Olympic , at least that I've seen, I've never seen it appear to be green.

Are there any photos or documents of this?
Thanks!

I could be completely wrong, but I think there's a possibility there could have been green/cream tiles in the wheelhouse-- just as much as it could possibly have been red/cream! It seems we won't know for sure unless some new information pops up; I can't find anything that says for certain what the colours were. I personally think it would have likely been red/cream, but, of course, the ships sometimes differed in their colour schemes. The main difference I know of regarding the wheelhouses is that the Olympic's was curved, whereas Titanic's was flat.

You are right! There is a photo of hers that was sent to me a few minutes after making this thread lol. I'd be happy to post it here if you're interested
