Letitia

Letitia

LETITIA was a handsome medium sized liner which ended her career with every captain's nightmare - sinking as a hospital ship full of wounded soldiers. Beginning her career on the Glasgow to Quebec City and Montreal service for the Donaldson Line, LETITIA was requisitioned as a hospital ship in 1914.

hello;
i have explored the wreck many times, it goes from about 30 ft at the shallow end to about 120 ft at the wreck's stern. Also the wreck of the steam trawler Cape Agulahs is very close to that of the Letitia, it ran aground while entering Halifax Harbour in 1956. In calm weather you can start your dive on the scattered remains of the Cape Agulhas , swim down the bank a little way and you will come across the wreckage of the Letitia. This shipwreck is among the most visited of the Halifax area wrecks ..
