RESOLUTE (Hamburg-America Line)
Laid down in 1914 for Hamburg America Line with the proposed name William O'Swald, but work was halted with the outbreak of WW1. After the war the incomplete was allocated to Royal Holland Lloyd as war reparation. Completed in 1920 as Brabantia and placed on Rotterdam to South America service. Sold in 1922 to United American Lines and renamed Resolute for Hamburg-New York service and registered in Panama in 1923 to avoid prohibition regulations. Returned to Hamburg America in 1926 and principally used as a cruise ship. Sold to Italy in 1935 as a troopship and renamed Lombardia. She was destroyed in an Allied air attack on Naples in August 1943, with the wreck raised and broken up in 1947.
