The Carpathia , launched in 1901 , came to the rescue when the Titanic distress signal was heard on the wireless on 14 April 1912. Later the Carpathia was sunk by a German U-boat in 1918 during World War One .

I had read a lot about the Titanic. I knew about the Capathia coming to their rescue, but I didn’t know it was sunk in WWI.
Good for Trivial Pursuits .
You have to wonder who came to rescue the Carpathia survivors?
The HMS Snowdrop , a military sloop , rescued the survivors after the ship was torpedoed by a German sub. Wonder no more .
