So, I was going through Olympic’s past paint schemes when i wondered about her 1914 appearance.

Apparently, she was painted to blend in with the night. with her yellow pinstripe removed, her superstructure painted up grey and certain windows covered. She even had her funnels painted black, almost like Lusitania’s.
To my knowledge, this was the hardest period of Olympic’s career to research and i was only able to find three photographs.

the only photos i was able to find:

if anyone has more information, that would be good.

I indeed do have photos of her during that time I’d have to look in my gallery I could email them to you if that is alright?

The black funnel like the Lusitania was used on Olympic she still carried passengers though during this time.
