ocean liner model ship
The SS Rex was an Italian ocean
liner launched in 1931. It held the westbound Blue
Riband between 1933 and 1935.
The SS Rex was found to be one of the most beautiful ships,
particularly noted for her outdoor swimming pools and
lido areas. Her owners worked at stressing the "sunny
southern route" to Europe.
The SS Rex operated transatlantic crossings from Italy with
its running mate, the Conte di Savoia. On 8 September
1944, off Koper, SS Rex was hit by 123 rockets launched by
RAF aircraft, caught fire from stem to stern, rolled
onto the port side, and sank in shallow water. The ship
was broken up at the site beginning in 1947.
