THE BEASTLY GERMAN NATION HAS SO MUCH TO BE GUILT-RIDDEN FOR, WHICH WILL BE THEIR PUNISHMENT IN PERPETUITY

Another story of the British ship RMS Lusitania, executed by the mindless butchers
of the sub-human crews of their U-Boats.

So many of us, young and old, are au fait with the tragic story of the liner RMS Lusitania. There are also other stories, mainly about happier times which still many people know about. This story may be less well known and deals with her technical achievements which transcended Germany technology of that period.

This is the story from the Times Newspaper dated 5th December 1911.

British Liners doing the Atlantic run called into Fishguard in Pembrokeshire Wales.
This little map shows you the position of that Port shown with the red splodge symbol.

All trans-Atlantic liners calling into Cork in southern Ireland navigated west past Daunt's Rock [Light or Lightship]. Daunt's Rock, is just outside the western sea-way of Cork's harbour, which infamously wrecked an American Liner at a much earlier time period.
This picture shows the position of Cork's sea areas ringed in red, and the position the Rock in open sea not far from the harbour entrance.
