RMS Empress of Britain was a steam turbine ocean liner built between 1928 and 1931 by John Brown shipyard in Scotland, owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and operated by Canadian Pacific Steamship Company. The ship provided scheduled trans-Atlantic passenger service from spring to autumn between Canada and Europe from 1931 until 1939. The largest, fastest and most luxurious ship running between Britain and Canada, it was also the largest ship in the Canadian Pacific fleet. It was torpedoed on 28 October 1940 by a U-boat and sank, becoming the largest liner lost in WWII and the largest ship sunk by a U-boat.
