Re: aunch of HMS Prince of Wales .....addendum
I'm almost certain it's the second RMS Mauretania
, which was also built at Cammel Laird and departed on her maiden voyage about six weeks after POW
's launch. It looks like she's in the late stages of fitting out. Queen Elizabet
h was built by John Brown so it wouldn't be fitting out at Cammel Laird.
Mauretania dated back much further.
Without looking anything up, suspicion is, liner in the background was RMS Queen Elizabeth .
According to Dulin and Garzke, the young lady at the extreme left bottom corner is princess Elizabeth, by then, first in line to the throne.
