NORMANDIE

Post by Deepol » Sat Feb 11, 2012 9:28 pm

Just over 70 years ago on 9th February 1942 fire broke out on the iconic French liner in New York resulting in her capsizing at her berth because of the amount of water poured into her despite appeals from her designer.
Subsequently stripped she was finally scrapped in 1946.
