1938: The British ocean liner "Queen Elizabeth," then the largest passenger liner ever built, is launched at Clydebank in Scotland. She first entered service in February 1940 as a troopship in World War II, and it was not until October 1946 that she would serve in her intended role as an ocean liner.
