The R.M.S. Empress of Ireland Community

Sister ships the Empress of Ireland & Empress of Britain

The differences between the Empresses were sometimes difficult to tell them apart in the early years of their careers. The commanders of each vessel had their own particular quirks on how their vessel was going to be run. For instance the Empress of Britain who was under the commander of James Anderson Murray would always have the first lifeboats near the bridge in a outward position.
