S.S. Empress of Australia

SS De Grasse was an ocean liner built in 1920–1924 by Cammell LairdBirkenheadUnited Kingdom for the Compagnie Generale Transatlantique, and launched in February 1924.She was refitted for Canadian Pacific Steamships in 1953, then renamed in that same year as the Empress of Australia.

S.S. Montcalm

Montcalm, sister of Montrose II and Montclare, was built by John Brown & Co, Glasgow and was launched in 1920. She made her Liverpool-Halifax-St. John maiden voyage on 17 January 1922. On the return leg, she rescued 23 members of the crew of the Norwegian steamer Mod.

In 1928, she was sent to Harland & Wolff, Belfast, for the installation of new single reduction turbines. When she returned to service in March 1929, she was placed on the Southampton-Canada route. She also made some Antwerp-Canada, Hamburg-Canada and Liverpool-Canada sailings over the next few years. In 1930, Montcalm made one of only two calls Canadian Pacific ever made at Reykjavik, Iceland.

By 1932, Montcalm was used principally for cruising out of Liverpool, but continued to make occasional Atlantic crossings out of Antwerp, Southampton and Liverpool. Her last crossing, from Liverpool, was in April 1939. When World War II began in September, the ship was taken over and renamed RMS Wolfe. Wolfe served successively as an armed merchant cruiser (1939), a troop transport (1941), a submarine depot ship (1942) and a destroyer depot ship (1943). Purchased by the Admiralty in 1942, she never returned to Canadian Pacific, but was laid up in 1950 and sold for breaking up in 1952.

Haws states that the renaming of Montcalm was necessary to avoid confusion with a French cruiser of that name. The selection of Wolfe as the new name, though, appears to have been quite deliberate. Major General James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm were the opposing commanders in the Battle of Québec (13 September 1759), during which they both were killed. Québec was the decisive battle of the French and Indian War, which solidified British control of Canada and the end of French rule there.

Empress of Scotland

RMS Empress of Japan was an ocean liner built in 1929–1930 by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Company at Govan on the Clyde in Scotland for Canadian Pacific Steamships (CP). This ship was the second of two CP vessels to be named Empress of Japan[1] – regularly traversed the trans-Pacific route between the west coast of Canada and the Far East until 1942.

In 1942, she was renamed RMS Empress of Scotland – the second of two CP vessels to be named Empress of Scotland.[2] In 1957, the Hamburg Atlantic Line purchased the ship and re-named her TS Hanseatic.[3]
