The RMS Olympic was the first Olympic-class ship commissioned by the White Star Line. She was the flagship of White Star's fleet throughout the 1910s. She served as a troopship during the First World War, which gained her the nickname "Old Reliable". The Olympic returned to civilian service after the war and served successfully as an ocean liner throughout the 1920s and into the first half of the 1930s, although increased competition, and the slump in trade during the Great Depression after 1930, made her operation increasingly unprofitable.
