Story of an Empress and Her Men

The Empress tells us the stories from her maiden voyage, her voyages as a luxury liner, as a transport for immigrants, her adventures in World War I and II, and her experiences as a rescue vessel and troop carrier, all creating a colorful life. Stories told by Len Butler, the youngest survivors aboard before she perished into the waters off Singapore.

We trace her journey from the shipyard in Glasgow, Scotland, to her home base in Canada, through her journeys to the Far East and other adventures. Highlight will include a baby girl named Asian which was born at sea on her and her last days in the war and the story of Len Butler.
