Biographical Note / History The SS Adriatic was launched by the White Star Line on 20 September 1906, leaving Liverpool for New York on 8 May 1907. On 5 June 1907 she started sailing from Southampton to Cherbourg to Queenstown to New York and did so until 26 July 1911, when she resumed Liverpool to New York voyages. She served as a troopship during the First World War without notable incident and then returned to passenger service. She was refitted in 1919 and 1928, changing the passenger capacity, and her routes varied between Liverpool to New York and Southampton to New York. Her last Liverpool to New York voyage commenced 25 February 1933. From 1933 onwards she was a cruiser and was commissioned in 1934 by the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides for a Goodwill Mediterranean cruise. She left Liverpool in December 1934 and sailed her longest voyage to Osaka, Japan where she was scrapped.
