“The RMS Empress of Britain was an ocean liner built between 1928 and 1931 by John Brown shipyard in Scotland and owned by Canadian Pacific Steamship Company, providing trans-Atlantic passenger service between Canada and Europe from 1931 until 1939.

“She was torpedoed on 28 October 1940 by U-32 and sank. She was the largest liner lost during the Second World War and the largest ship sunk by a U-boat.”
