    A brilliant tribute to the Belfast workforce!
    Work starts next week on Southampton's Sea City Museum, it will contain a Titanic museum and open on the anniversary of the sinking.
    That sounds really good. I think a visit to Southampton is well overdue for me, hopefully I can get down before 2012.

    When seeing that clip, I clearly understand why the Irish people of Belfast were so proud of their ship.
    Indeed mate, many butch men were crying like babies when news of the sinking reached Belfast. The same could said for workers on the Clyde and the Mersey. Very proud men.

      The amount of work, hardship and detail on this ship would have made the ship an integral part of many workers life... and then, almost unfathomably, she sank only days after entering service.

      It's hard to understand, even today....

      It's almost like the Norwegian Epic sinking on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic... unthinkable in those years, unthinkable in these years....

        Southampton City Council are hoping to have the opening day on the day Titanic has it's 100 year anniversary Bill,with that being April 14th 2012 I would expect a large scale event to commemorate it

        My Great Grandfather new a lot of the men from the Northam district in Southampton who perished on her, he was one of those that bunkered up the Titanic right up until the time she left the port. They had to borrow coal from many other ships because of the strike that was happening.

          Thats brilliant, I bet he had some stories to tell

            He had quite a few stories of how it used to be back then, he would often tell me about the great liners.
            One he did tell me about was the photo he had taken stood in front of the Titanic, he had the photo for many years up until his passing in 1988 and after that the photo disappeared. One of the less than savoury family members has it, only problem is which one.

              I would dearly love to see that photograph

                If you can remember Bill, there is a very famous photo of Titanic with a white haired gentleman with a bowler hat sat in front of the ship. My Great Grandfather is stood up in front of the ship near that position, he was in his Sunday best that day as he went onboard the Titanic for a look around like a lot of others did that Good Friday before she sailed.

                  An article in the Norwegian Dagbladet about a letter sent by a survivor of the Titanic disaster, which will be put up for sale soon.

                  In the letter, the survivor, a servant of Lady Lucy Duff-Gordon, writes about how 5 rich men bought the last lifeboat to get away from the sinking Titanic, and left a full ship of people to die.

                  Quite a gripping story.

                    Indeed, it`s expected to reach in excess of £15,000.
