Sail Training Ship Gorch Fock 1 - Segelschulschiff Gorch Fock 1

The Sail Training Ship Gorch Fock is by far the most famous ship in Germany. Especially when the currency in Germany was the Deutsche Mark, every child knew the Gorch Fock, because it was printed at the back of the 10 DM bill, before it was replaced by new DM notes in 1995. What most people - even in Germany - do not know: today there are 2 ships, which share the name Gorch Fock. Both of them do not only share the name, but also an exciting history. The Gorch Fock 1, which shows my photograph, was build 1932-1933, 1945 it was sunk purposely, and in 1947 salvaged by the Russians. Till 1991, renamed in Towarishtsh, the Gorch Fock 1 served as sail training vessel in the Sowiet Union, and sailed until 1993 under Ukrainian flag. 2003, the Gorch Fock 1 returned back to its hailing port Stralsund. The sister ship still is in service as sail training ship in the German Navy.

Ocean Liner  MS Philippines - Manila Philippines

Ocean Liner MS Philippines - Manila Philippines

MS Philippines, was a floating hotel and restaurant at Manila. MS Augustus was a 27,090 GRT, luxurious ocean liner built in 1950 for Italian Line. She was the sister ship to MS Giulio Cesare that was launched in the same year. These two ships were built to the same design, with similar specifications. After the Augustus was sold to Hong Kong, she sailed under five names. The ship was later sold to Manila Hotel and renamed MS Philippines, functioning as a static hotel. As reported by both Maritimematters, and ssmaritime, the MS Philippines, was sold for scrap in September 2011. As of December 2011, she was beached in Alang for scrapping.
