HMHS Gloucester Castle (His Majesty’s Hospital Ship) was a steam ship originally built for the Union-Castle Line, but requisitioned for use as a British hospital ship during the First World War. She was, however, salvaged, and returned to civilian service after the war. She was sunk again by the German commerce raider Michel off Ascension Island in the South Atlantic in 1942. more on wikipedia
