- The souvenir metal compact was purchased sometime during a cruise by an unknown person. It is part of a cruise liner collection by D. Benson and Family over a period of years. D. Benson sold part of the collection to the V.M.C who purchased the remaining part. It is a great source of information to visitors to the V.M.C. At the time of ocean liner holiday cruising, many people purchased these souvenirs to keep or give away as gifts.
- The ship that this item came from the R.M.S Morea in 1908 was used as a troop carrier. In 1915 it was converted to a hospital ship. In 1918 it was an armed merchant ship. In 1919 it resumed service. In 1930 it was broken up in Japan.
