Titanic sails on .. and on


After two years working on the content for Titanic, Belfast in 2010-2012, and total immersion in the story (ahem), I can’t resist the odd Titanic story on this blog. Often, Titanic interest in the media is connected to the sale of memorabilia – ship’s biscuit, postcard, letter etc –  which isn’t particularly novel, but here is a genuinely interesting story which highlights a fascinating research project. The ‘Hidden Lives Revealed’ blog features stories from the archives of The Children’s Society, in this case that of Frederick Fleet.

Fleet was one of the lookouts on Titanic the night the ship collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, and he was also placed in a children’s home at the age of two. The blog relates the sad story of his early years.
