Profile

One of only 12 souls saved on lifeboat 1 and testified about Lord Cosmo Duff Gordon's offer to support the crew.


'Lady Gordon said to Miss Franks, "There is your beautiful nightdress  gone," and I said, "Never mind about your nightdress madam, as long as  you have got your life"; and then I heard someone forward at the fore  end of me say - I said we had lost our kits and that our pay was stopped  from the time she was a wreck - "We will give you a little to start a  new kit." That was all I heard.'


He died at sea when his patrol boat H.M.S Dirk was torpedoed by UC75 off Flamborough Head, Yorkshire in 1918. His body was never recovered.
