In Home from the Sea, Rostron states the Mauretania was given a code name of HMS Tuber Rose, which he was not aware of for years until he received a letter for the Captain of the Tuber Rose.

Does anyone know the code names given to the other White Star and Cunard vessels while they were in use during the war?

wow, I need to find the answer to this; could be useful - I think I read Lusitania's wartime-code call-signal was MFR, but must check, and that's not quite the same as the question, HMS some-or-other... never read about this on Lusitania but will look for it!

so... what's a "tuber rose"? a flower specie?
