When there was a financial problem that popped up the Britannic was unable to be completed- the project was abandoned for about a year; however when the war broke out in 1914 the owners know that the ship needed to be completed as fast a possible because the government needed it to help out in the war. Instead of the designs be completed making the interior look like her sisters there were changes- the dining rooms became operating theaters and main wards, the B deck became housing for medical officers and other staff- with these changes the ship was then able to fit 3310
