What are the odds?
SS Mahratta was a steamship owned by Brocklebank Line. Launched in 1917, SS Mahratta (1917) ran aground in the English Channel on the Goodwin Sands twenty-two years later in 1939. She was the second and final Brocklebank Line ship with this name. The first Mahratta suffered a similar fate in 1909. Ironically, after Mahratta broke up, the ship was found to be resting on top of the first Mahratta.
