Fantastic video footage Amazing to see what it was like in reality, yet such a tragedy and multiple loss of life. So sad in that respect. Hope to go to see the new Titanic Experience when it opens at the end of March 2012 Can't wait

Paula: Britannic was hit by a missile not a torpedo. I had a social studies project on titanic
Kirsten 01 July 2011
You are correct, Paula. Britannic was one and Olympic was the other.

Here's a news item that goes into more detail.
