Hello, Gordon, and welcome back to Just Answer.

The speed of the ship was 18 knots per hour. Here is a website that describes the ship in detail: This site also has a photo of the ship and gives a history of her up until her sinking from being hit by a German submarine torpedo on 6/11/1916.

I hope this answers your question, but if you need more information please let me know.

Thanks for trusting your questions to Just Answer!
