RMS Royal George


Media TitleRMS Royal George
Media NotesOriginally launched as "Heliopolis" in 28 May 1907 and renamed as "Royal George" in 1910 when acquired by the Canadian Northern Steamships company. She had a triple-screw propulsion system that provided a cruising speed of 19 knots. She was taken over by the Canadian military at the start of WW1 and mainly used as a UK troop ship until 1919 when she was returned to Cunard Line, which in 1916 had bought the entire fleet of Canadian Northern Steamships.

Royal George resumed passenger service on 10 February 1919, first between Liverpool, Halifax, Nova Scotia and New York, and later between Southampton, Halifax and New York. After nine voyages with the Cunard Line, she was retired in 1920 and used as a depot ship at Cherbourg Harbour in France to process emigrants, before finally being scrapped in 1922 at Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
