RMS Mauretania during WW I. The boat is painted, as many were in both world wars, in Dazzle or Razzle Dazzle camoflague. The idea was to disorient attacking U-boats, the paint job supposedly making it hard to determine the target vessel's type and course.

The Mauretania was the sister ship of the RMS Lucitania which was sunk by a German U-boat during WWI.  The British (and later Canadians) conscripted her for service.  She first served as a troop carrier and then became a hospital.  She was taken out of service in 1934 and dismantled for parts. Cunard Line.
