These were the Empresses of Asia, Canada, France and Russia with the Japan announced for 1930. On the Atlantic were the Empresses of Australia, Canada and Scotland; the Duchesses of Athol, Bedford, Richmond and York; the Montcalm, Montclare, Montrose, and Montroyal (the first Empress of Britain); and former Beaver Line ships Melita, Metagama, and Minnedosa.
