Another Titanic footnote

After I posted some old family pictures a while back which showed my father with the Titanic‘s second officer, Commander Lightoller, on a trip to Calais in 1939, I was contacted by Tiphaine Hirou of the French Titanic Society asking for permission to use the photos.

I’ve just received a copy of Tiphaine’s interesting article about Lightoller and his yacht Sundowner, illustrated with those pictures, which has been published in the Society’s journal. She’s given me permission to post a pdf of the English translation here.
