Product information

BALTIC (White Star Line)
Built by Harland & Wolff she made her maiden voyage, Liverpool-New York, in 1904. In 1909, thanks to wireless telegraphy, she rescued over 1200 survivors from the collision between White Stars' Republic and Lloyd Italianos' Florida. On April 14th 1912 Baltic used her wireless to warn fleet-mate Titanic about ice.....
During 1914 she remained in transatlantic service but was requisitioned as a troopship from 1915, and survived a U-Boat attack in 1917. She resumed commercial service at the end of 1918. She was withdrawn in September 1932 and broken up in Japan in 1933.
