Yes it is....but this is actually a very famous ship.

Hint #1: It was involved in a deadly marine accident.

Nope....far away from Gallipoli. The disaster involed a collision with another ship.

Is it the Imo, one of the ships involved in the deadly Halifax explosion?

Horatio_nelson has it!! The Imo collided with another ship called the Mont-Blanc which was carrying ammunition. The Mont-Blanc promptly exploded creating the largest manmade explosion until Hiroshima. Here is an excellent CBC site on one of the greatest disasters in Canadian history. http://www.cbc.ca/halifaxexplosion/index.html

Well, is anyone going to take a shot at this one?

First clue: He is from one of the minor powers.

At work now, that is, without my books. I can't resist a wild guess though: a British Webley (.45?) revolver, model unknown.
