no, she was only a nine weeks old when the titanic sank. she did not even know that she was on it till she a a few years old. olympic was sunk during ww1 off of greece. she was a hospital ship for the british and lost some where around fifty people.

Apparently the fact that the two ships had their identities swapped is common knowedge amongst the generation of those who used to work in Harland & Wolfe in Belfast. Also, when they finally located the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic the surface paint had eroded away revealing the grey undercoat,problem is Titanic didn't have a grey undercoat. . .but Olympic did!

I may be wrong (hey, it wouldn't be the first time) but I was under the impression that Britannic hit a sea mine during WW1 and it was the Olympic (or Titanic depending on how you swing) was the longest serving ship

My brother-in-law, who sadly passed away three years ago, used to drink in the Ship & Mitre pub in Liverpool with Lightholler, who was one of the main crew on the Titanic. Although he was an old man at the time he would gladly talk about his brave rescuing of soldiers on the beaches of Dunkirk but flatly refused to talk about the Titanic disaster. He always used to say that there was more to this story than was generally known.
