The Cunard Sisters - Lusitania and Mauretania
The Lusitania and Mauretania, two early 20th century ocean liners
About this creation

RMS Lusitania was a British luxury ocean liner owned by the Cunard Steamship Company and built by John Brown and Company of Clydebank, Scotland. Christened and launched on Thursday, June 7, 1906. Lusitania met a disastrous end as a casualty of the First World War when she was torpedoed by the German submarine U-20 on May 7, 1915. The great ship sank in just 18 minutes, eight miles (15 km) off the Old Head of Kinsale, Ireland, killing 1,198 of the people aboard. The sinking turned public opinion in many countries against Germany.

RMS Mauretania, sister ship of the Lusitania, was an ocean liner built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson at Wallsend, Tyne and Wear, and was launched on September 20, 1906. At the time, she was the largest and fastest ship in the world. Particularly notable was her steam turbine propulsion, which was a revolutionary development in ocean liner design. Mauretania became a favourite among the passengers,[1] attributable to her luxury, speed, and safety.

The ship's name was taken from Mauretania a Roman Province on the northwest African coast, not related to the modern Mauritania. Similar nomenclature was also employed by Mauretania's sister ship, the Lusitania, which was named after the Roman province directly north of Mauretania, across the Strait of Gibraltar.

The Mauretania is depicted with red and black funnels. The Lusitania is shown in its wartime livery with black funnels.

I believe the Mauretania was transformed into warship for transporting troops. And if I remember correctly, she was later found with a mark at her bow, proving that a torpedo just missed her. She was later disassembled... I think. I know to much. Just maybe something you would like to add to that. As for the designs, well great designs! Good day
