The R.M.S. DORIC was built by: Harland & Wolffe in1923. She had a length of 576 Feet, a width of 68 Ft, and displacement was 16,484 Gr Tons. Her Propulsion was Steam Turbines - Twin Screw, with a top speed of 15 knots, making her rather slow. Following the drop in passenger travel during the Depression years of the early 30's, Doric was refit for cruising in 1932. In September 1935 while returning from a Mediterranean cruise, when she collided off the Atlantic coast of Portugal with the French cargo ship Formigny and was severely damaged below the waterline. Passengers were offloaded onto the P&O liners Orion and Viceroy of India. Doric's crew managed to get her to Vigo where temporary repairs were made. She then sailed for Tilbury where it was determined she was worth more as scrap rather than repairing her. This nice little Bud Vase is therefore well over 70 years of age. Just a spot of enamel missing off flag area.
