SS Medic (1899)

From SpottingWorld, the Hub for the SpottingWorld network...

The SS Medic was a steamship built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast for the White Star Line in 1899. Medic was one of three "Jubilee Class" ocean liners, the other two being the SS Afric and SS Persic, built specifically to service the Liverpool-Cape Town-Sydney route.[1]

Medic, like her sisters, was a single-funnel liner which measured just under 12,000 tons and was configured to carry 320 steerage or third class passengers. Because these ships were launched in the last year of the 19th century, they were referred to as the "Jubilee Class".[1]

After a long life with White Star she was sold and converted to a whale factory ship before finally being sunk by the German U-boat U-608 on 11 September 1942 during World War II.
