Topic: The Last Titanic Survivor.

Being brought up in 60's Belfast, the Titanic was a ship of mythic proportions. It had been built in the city's ship yards by guys who were still alive. They'd bashed rivets, carved the furniture, fitted the chandeliers, made the ship's linen. There was a huge pride in having built the finest ship ever to grace the seas - as well as an abiding sadness that it had all come to nothing.

It was sad, therefore to see that the last Titanic survivor has just died. See … ed-97.html

It feels almost too big a tragedy for a song.
