|Contextual Notes||The PRINCESS MARGUERITE was built by the John Brown yards on the Clyde in England for the B.C. Coast Service of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The older PRINCESS MARGUERITE was torpedoed and sunk in the Mediterannian in 1942. The new PRINCESS MARGUERITE was put in service in 1949, having been designed for day service on the Seattle-Victoria-Vancouver international triangle run during the summer months. She and her sister ship, the PRINCESS PATRICIA, were of 5,911 tons and were powered by twin-screw steam turbo-electric drive. (pg. 561) Notes from Gordon Newell, ed., The H.W.
