  12. RMS Campania in the Mersey

    Full resolution(2,920 × 2,167 pixels)

    RMS Campania was a British ocean liner owned by the Cunard Steamship Line Shipping Company, built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company of Govan, Scotland, and launched on Thursday, 8 September 1892.

    Campania was the largest and fastest passenger liner afloat when she entered service in 1893.  She crossed the Atlantic in less than six days; and on her second voyage in 1893, she won the prestigious Blue Riband.

    Sunk in a collision with HMS Glorious 5 November 1918:
    Six days before the armistice was signed, when she was involved in an accident in the Firth of Forth during high winds.
    Campania dragged her anchor in a sudden squall, and at 03:45 struck the bow of the battleship Royal Oak and then dragged along the side of the battle cruiser Glorious.
    She began to sink stern first. A few hours later an explosion—presumed to be a boiler—sent her to the bottom.
