REMEMBERING CARPATHIA, TITANIC's HEROIC RESCUE SHIP

100th anniversary of the loss of RMS Carpathia, off the south Coast of Ireland, on 17th July 1918


We are delighted to be working with Titanic Belfast to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the loss of RMS Carpathia, Titanic's rescue ship


To mark this important and special occasion we will be meeting onboard SS Nomadic, hamilton dry dock, in Titanic Quarter, Belfast on Tuesday 17th July 2018.  At 8.30am there will be a short welcome by the Society followed by special readings from newspaper reports of the 'day' telling the story of not only the dramatic rescue by Captain Rostron and his crew, of the surviviors from the Titanic disaster in 1912, taken from the perspective of those on board Carpathia, but also a short passage marking the torpedo attack, and subsequent loss of Carpathia with the sad loss of five of her crew...in the last days of the first world war.


All Society members and their guests are welcome to attend - please be on board Nomadic for 8.15am and the event will start at 8.30 shapp.


There will be refreshments provided afterwards on Board Nomadic (second class accomodation). There will be a small 'Carpathia' exhibition in the foyer of Titanic Belfast which you can visit afterwards.


Special Guest - Janet Rostron (Barnett),who is making her second visit to Belfast this year to help us with the Carpathia anniversary events (Janet is the great-granddaughter of Carpathia's Captain)


Call for Carpathia survivor information.
