Fact of the Day: Britannic

The Titanic had a sister ship known as the Britannic. She did not hit a iceberg, but she did sink. Though it was after the Titanic sinking, and an underwater mine during World War I caused her to sink. Though only about 30 people died, as the ship was far more prepared than the Titanic about safety and evacuating.

Hi Adam, I love everything about the Titanic (not the movie, the real ship), so thanks for sharing this. The Titanic had two sister ships...the Olympic and the Britannic. :)

I knew there was a sister ship, but I never knew what happened to it.
