Mark Chirnside is back for a second year to talk about the White Star Line's Oceanic, often called the 'Ship of the Century', launched by Harland & Wolff in 1899. Lavishly outfitted, she developed a reputation for popularity and reliability, running on the express route to New York for fifteen years. In 1914, she served very briefly as an armed merchant cruiser before running aground and becoming a total loss.
