The Titanic's sister ship, the Olympic, rammed into and sunk U-boats during the war. The theory is that they did crude repairs to this ship, said it was the Titanic, and then sunk it.

Here's an article for sauce on the Olympic's War efforts.

The article also states that the Olympic didn't pick up survivors because from the Titanic because they didn't want to traumatize passengers with an identical boat.

Or is it because they were on the Olympic to begin with?

The Titanic sank in 1912 two years before the start of WW1.
