Transcript of White Star Line Ships

Timeline 1911 1912 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Violet Jessop Captain Edward Smith Captain Edward Smith served as a captain for many many years. Due to him, there were many first-class passengers on the Titanic as of most first-class passengers only traveled on ships with him as captain. Smith did not survive on the Titanic. Smith just simply went down the the ship because of the accident fell into his hands. Smith felt that it was his fault the Titanic sank because of all the messages that reported icebergs, GIANT icebergs all around. Smith was a great captain. White Star Line The White Star Line company was a British shipping company. The Cunard Line was the chief competitor to White Star. In response to Cunard's Lusitania and Mauretania, White Star ordered the Olympic class liners: Olympic, Titanic, and Britannic (II). While Cunard was famed for the speed of its ships, the Olympic class were to be the biggest and most luxurious ships in the world. The Olympic was the only ship of this class that was profitable for White Star. Titanic sank on her maiden voyage, while Britannic was requisitioned by the British government before she was fully fitted, and used as a hospital ship during World War I. Britannic sank after hitting a mine on 21 November 1916. Titanic RMS TItanic was British passenger liner that carried 2,220 passengers and crew on her maiden voyage. This ship sank at 2:18 A.M. on April 15th, 1912 after hitting an iceberg at 11:45 P.M. on April 14th, 1912. Only 712 survived because of the limited number of lifeboats and 1,496 died. The First Sister Ship The Olympic was the first sister ship to make it's maiden voyage. The Olympic served for many many years until it's collision with the HMHS Hawke. The ship went down but fortunately didn't kill anybody. All 1,000 passengers survived. Millvina Dean At 6 weeks old, Millvina Dean was the youngest survivor and the last survivor of TItanic survivors. Oddly though, The Deans were not supposed to be aboard the Titanic, but owing to a coal strike, they were transferred to the ship and boarded it as third-class passengers at Southampton, England. Her mother, and brother were placed in Lifeboat 13 and were among the first steerage passengers to escape the sinking oceanliner. Britannic The Britannic was the last of the three sister ships to set sail on her maiden voyage. Believe it or not, this ship was originally going to be called the Gigantic! This ship struck an underwater mine, bringing the beautiful ship down. 30 people died and the 1,000 other passengers survived. White Star Line Ships The Death Toll Comparison Olympic The Titanic sank in about 3 hours. This is the Titanic as it lies deep down in the Atlantic Ocean: By: Amy Violet Jessop survived on all three sister ships, the Titanic, the Britannic, and the Olympic. She worked as a stewardess on the Titanic from 1912-1912, stewardess on the Olympic from 1915-1965, and a nurse on the Britannic from 1913-1914. Violet Jessop almost died on all three sister ships. In 1911, the Olympic made it's maiden voyage. In 1912, the Olympic made it's collision with the HMHS Hawke bringing the ship down into the Atlantic Ocean. In 1912, the Titanic made it's maiden voyage. In 1912, the Titanic hit an ice berg, sinking in about 3 hours. to If the lifeboats were at full capacity on the Titanic, more lives could have been saved. When the Titanic began sending out distress signals, the Californian, rather than the Carpathia, was the closest ship; yet the Californian did not respond until it was much too late to help. At 12:45 a.m. on April 15, 1912, crew members on the Californian saw mysterious lights in the sky (the distress flares sent up from the Titanic) and woke up their captain to tell him about it. Unfortunately, the captain issued no orders. Since the ship's wireless operator had already gone to bed, the Californian was unaware of any distress signals from the Titanic until the morning, but by then the Carpathia had already picked up all the survivors. Many people believe that if the Californian had responded to the Titanic's pleas for help, many more lives could have been saved. 1916 1916 to The Britannic was a hospital ship that carried 1,134 passengers. The Britannic's maiden voyage was in 1916. The Britannic suddenly hit a German underwater mine, sinking the ship with 30 deaths and 41 injuries. If you ever see the Britannic underwater, you will see that the ship is more impact for a sunken ship. On the Titanic, there were 2,220 passengers while 1,496 died and only 712 passengers survived (mostly first-class). While the Olympic had 1,000 passengers that all survived. On the Britannic, she hit a German underwater mine, sinking the ship. 30 people died while 1,104 survived. Thank you for taking your time for looking at the terrible disasters in maritime history.
