RMS Campania was a British ocean liner owned by the Cunard Steamship L ine Shipping Company, built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineerin g Company of Govan, Scotland, and launched on Thursday, 8 September 18 92.

Identical in dimensions and specifications to her sister ship RMS Luca nia, Campania was the largest and fastest passenger liner afloat whe n she entered service in 1893. She crossed the Atlantic in less than s ix days, and on her second voyage in 1893, she won the prestigious Blu e Riband, previously held by the Inman Liner SS City of Paris. The fol lowing year, Lucania won the Blue Riband and kept the title until 189 8 - Campania being the marginally slower of the two sisters.
Final days
Campania and Lucania served as Cunard's major passenger liners for 1 4 years, during which time they were superseded in both speed and siz e by a succession of four-funnelled German liners, starting with the K aiser Wilhelm der Grosse in 1897, which sparked off a battle between n ations to create the largest most powerful liners such as the Kaiser a nd Olympic-class ocean liners. The German competition necessitated th e construction of replacements for the two Cunarders, which came to fr uition in 1907 with the appearance of the RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauret ania.

With the appearance of a third Cunard giant in 1914, RMS Aquitania, Ca mpania was no longer required. Her last planned voyage for Cunard wa s her 250th, and commenced on 25 April 1914. On her return to Liverpoo l, she was chartered to the Anchor Line to do voyages from Glasgow t o New York. However, the First World War broke out and Aquitania, havi ng completed only three voyages, was immediately commandeered by the N avy and converted into a fully armed merchant cruiser. Campania was th erefore recalled to take her place but unfortunately, she was too ol d and managed only three voyages before being sold for scrap. Her las t voyage as a passenger liner was on 26 September 1914. However, Campa nia was to have a last-minute reprieve.
HMS Campania - (1914) - The sinking of Campania
While Campania awaited demolition, the Admiralty stepped in at the las t minute and bought her with a view of converting her to an armed merc hant cruiser that could carry seaplanes. The original idea was to us e float-planes which would be lowered into and retrieved from the wate r by a crane. The conversion was carried out at the Cammell Laird ship yard in Birkenhead. Her interior was completely gutted, and room mad e inside to store up to 14 aircraft. She was also equipped with eigh t 4.7" (120-mm) guns.

The conversion was completed in 1915, and trials took place under Capt ain Oliver Schwann of the Royal Navy, with Charles H. Lightoller (form erly second officer of RMS Titanic) as the first officer. Two weeks la ter she joined the fleet at Scapa Flow as HMS Campania, and subsequent ly began manoeuvres in the North Sea. Her job was to send aeroplanes a head to scout for the German fleet.

After a short period, it was decided to add 160 ft (49 m) flight dec k at the front of the ship, to enable aircraft to take off directly fr om the ship without being lowered into the water. Trials following thi s conversion indicated that the deck was too short, so it was extende d to 220 ft (67 m). The alterations required the removal of the forwar d part of the superstructure, and the first funnel (which was replace d by two narrower funnels on each side). The aft deck was cleared an d the aft mast removed, so that she could also serve as an Observatio n Balloon Ship. Campania now bore little resemblance to her original c onfiguration.

HMS Campania served with the Admiralty right up until 5 November 1918- just six days before the armistice was signed, when she was involved i n an accident in the Firth of Forth during high winds. Campania dragge d her anchor in a sudden squall, and at 03:45 struck the bow of the ba ttleship Royal Oak and then dragged along the side of the battle cruis er HMS Glorious. She began to sink stern first. A few hours later an e xplosion-presumed to be a boiler-sent her to the bottom.

Because of the shallowness of the water, she was considered a danger t o shipping and large charges were placed on the decks to demolish her . By 1921 the wreck had been reduced to a safe clearance depth. Furthe r to this destruction it is reported that salvage of valuable metals t ook place on the wreck, possibly during the late 1940s and the 1960s.[ 4]:i, 9-10 Despite this damage, the wreck site today is classified a s being of historical importance, being designated under the Protectio n of Wrecks Act in 2000. This designation was revoked in 2013 when th e site was re-designated as a Historic Marine Protected Area under th e Marine (Scotland) Act 2010.[5]

18 Farmer at Bodyhfredd, near Wrexham, then at Elmhurst, Preston Road, Coppull. When he died, the farm was run by his wife, then taken over by his son James who continue to run it until 1960. It was sold when his wife Lililan died. SCOTSON James Edmund (I170)
 
19 Found by his parents in bed at his home on 1/10/11 - 11 Mopoke Hill Road Warrandyte - after he didn't show up to dinner for his twin sons' birthday.
They believe he passed away on 29/09/11 after going to bed and believe he died from a seizure.

Several months before he died he had a seizure at home which left him disoriented and doctors put him on medication to control any future seizures. The medication meant he was not allowed to drive, so he came on holidays to QLD with his parents. Less than a week after they returned to Victoria, he must have had a seizure in bed and died in bed.

Lived with wife Amelia at 74 Percy Street, Mitcham, Victoria

33 Undoubtedly the most famous of the Scotson brood was an "Old Aunt Martha" who outlived all the rest of them and was well know to practically everone who bore the name. Born on May 8th 1833, she did not leave us until April 11th, 1929, so that on her departure she lacked just one month for her 96th birthday. Although born too late to meet her grandfather James (who died in the year 1812) by a few years, still her life span brought her close enough to learn most of the details relating to him, how he came to the smithy in the first place and what progress he had made during his lifetime. Remarkably, Aunt Martha did not change her name when she married, which is something of a rarity, for she married her cousin John Scotson, who like herself, had one of the seven fiddlers for a father. John was born at Wood End in 1819, but grew up along with his wife in close proximity to both Chisnall and Clayton Halls which seem to be occupied by all of the fiddlers and their families at different periods. After John & Martha were married they moved away from the Chorley district and occupied yet another landmark known as Holt Hall Farm at Gateacre, near Liverpool. Aunt Martha and her son, James Edward, who followed her were tenants on this farm for many years and it was here that I knew them best, for I had spent many schoolboy vacations with "Unclie Jim Ned" The Scotson Cycle (1725-1966) by William Scotson SCOTSON Martha (I129)

35 What the intentory, taken on 3 August 1584, of the goods and chattels of John Scotson of Abbot Park, does reveal is a real clue (not fully appreciated for some time) to the mysterys as to how his descendant Thomas Scotson c.1628-1691 became a comparitively wealthy man, not a 'millionaire' but still rich enough to send his three sons to school (almost certainly Hawkshead Grammar School) and the young one, on to university.

In January 1681Thomas had bought a messuage & tenement in Linda-in-Furness, from John Benson for £100, and on June 18 the transaction was passed in the Manor Court of Furness by the Steward there, one Curwen Rawlinson. And in July 1688 he appears to have sold the same to William Mason

James was the son of Robert Scotson. Through a photograph taken of James at the National Union of Teachers Conference 1895 we found that he had written a speech which was published in book form and also two other books. He was very highly thought of as a teacher and was awarded an honorary science degree and also made a justice of the peace. James was of a family of 7 brohters and sisters.
