THE ARTICLE BY Andrew Bell in the July 2013 issue of Sea Breezes states at Page 35 that the Empress ship which played a notable part in port rescue operations in the Yokohama Earthquake in 1923 was the Empress of Asia of 1913.
It was in fact the Empress of Australia, ex Empress of China, ex Tirpitz which was involved and a plaque on board recorded this fact.
