The Castalia hospital ship.

© National Maritime Museum, London
Repro ID: H4168
Description: The 'Castalia' was a most unusual vessel, different from the other hospital ships. She was built as a twin-hulled paddle steamer, but her design had not been successful. Her accommodation was five ward blocks erected on her deck, making her look more like a floating street.
