I have an article in this month’s Scots Magazine [April 2008] on the Cunard liner Carmania. She was Cunard’s first turbine-powered liner and was built at John Brown’s shipyard at Clydebank. Apart from her regular career as a luxury trans-Atlantic liner the Carmania had a second life during the 1st World War as an armed merchant cruiser and fought a classic single ship action against the German merchant cruiser Cap Trafalgar.
