1910 September Footnotes

[2] RMS Oceanic was a transatlantic ocean liner built for the White Star Line and was the largest ship in the world until 1901.  In 1914, the newly designated HMS Oceanic departed Southampton to patrol the waters from the North Scottish mainland to Faroe. On 8 September she ran aground and was wrecked off the island of Foula, in the Shetland Islands. (me: just opposite my front door!)
