The Afternoon to Remember!

This weekend is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
She sank the night of the 14th April, the morning 15th April    

About thirty-five years ago we met Eva Hart.  She was about 77yrs old when we met her.  We sat opposite her at a wedding reception, now please pardon the pun, but to break the ice she said I was on the Titanic!  The whole table stopped talking and listened to this interesting lady, who finished by saying I never saw my father again!  She was just seven years when this real life adventure happened to her. 

A few years ago, I think about the ninetith anniversary
I heard this on the radio, something completely different!


  1. thanks for sharing i really enjoyed the youtube vids...eva harts moving...and the news of the iceberg was a great one too- made me smile ;0)xx

  2. Really interesting Julie, about Eva Hart and the poem about the polar bear! x

  3. What a lovely story. My Grandma has been telling everyone in the home she is in that she survived the titanic and 2 world wars - until I pointed out to her she was born 2 years after it sank!


  4. Wow, how amazing, she is the lady whose 'identity' I was given in the Titanic exhibition.How I would love to have met her and I bet everyone was fascinated.

  5. What a fascinating person to meet :o)

  6. What a wonderful opportunity you had to meet a survivor of the Titanic.

    We have just been watching the footage from the ship that has been retracing her steps.

    I never met her but I visited her house, which was like a museum to the Titanic.
    She told my Mum that someone asked if they could buy a lock of her hair, she sent some thinking they were completely insane!
