Fur Coat with Proviance



On 14 April, 1912 four days into the crossing and about 375 miles south of Newfoundland, RMS Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. ship's time. The collision caused the ship's hull plates to buckle inwards along her starboard (right) side and opened five of her sixteen watertight compartments to the sea; she could only survive four flooding. Meanwhile, passengers and some crew members were evacuated in lifeboats, many of which were launched only partially loaded. At 2:20 a.m., April 15, she broke apart and foundered—with well over one thousand people still aboard. Just under two hours after Titanic sank, the Cunard liner RMS Carpathia arrived at the scene, where she brought aboard an estimated 705 survivors.



A fur coat worn by a Titanic survivor as the ship sank has been found 105 years later and is now being sold for $80,000! This beaver lamb fur coat has seen it all. It's a piece of ancient history.It belonged to a woman named Mabel Bennett who was a stewardess on the ship. When the Titanic was sinking, she grabbed the coat right before hopping into a lifeboat.



This comfy coat kept her warm as she sat and waited four hours for the rescue ship, while watching the Titanic sink. A photo was taken two weeks after the incident, when she, along with other survivors, waited for another ship to go back to her home in England. Bennett was 33 years old at the time.




She kept the coat for 50 more years until she eventually gave it to her niece when the jacket became too bulky for her to wear. The auctioneers claim this is the only piece of clothing worn by a crew member that exists today.

Jack, you brought up an interesting theory. Will have to follow up on that.

    Interesting! Thanks.

    There is a new theory making the rounds on TV that it wasn't the iceberg that sank her but an out-of-control fire in the engine room.

    They are all dead anyways

    XOXO

    Jack
I am aware of the coal bunker fire but not heard anything further.

There's always something new cropping up, however, with the rapid deteriation of the site coupled with it's great depth I doubt we will ever know.
