I wonder if they had organs commissioned. I'm sure all these ships had a chapel. It seems as though they would have had organs in those chapels.   Jerry   Chirp|Chirp|Chirp: It's the Bat, Chirping Bat .Com

Both = were built. As commercial liners, no spaces were designated as chapels. "Divine Service" was held in a public room such as a dining saloon or a lounge. This was the custom on British ships. Where space permitted, a chapel was =   more often a feature of French or Italian ships.   The Britannic never entered commercial service, but sailed as a hospital ship in World War I. Here, we might assume some space was fitted out for religious purposes.   The story of the Titanic's missing Welte is fascinating. I've been a Titanic buff for years, but this is the first I've heard of it. The = ship's deck plans don't designate any organ chambers, so the organ as "furniture" =   makes sense. So I wonder if the Olympic got a Welte? It's a much better documented ship than the Titanic, but again, no sign of a Welte in photos = or text.   -Mark     >From: "Jerry Richer" <jerry@ChirpingBat.Com> >Reply-To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> >To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> >Subject: Re: The H.M.H.S.
