The Sinking of RMS Titanic

Today I am reminded of that unforgettable tragedy at sea more than a hundred years ago -The sinking of the RMS Titanic which occurred on the night of 14 April through to the morning of 15 April 1912 when she sank in the north Atlantic Ocean, four days into the ship's maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. The largest passenger liner in service at the time, Titanic had an estimated 2,224 people on board when she struck an iceberg at around 23:40 (ship's time) on Sunday, 14 April 1912. Her sinking two hours and forty minutes later at 02:20 (05:18 GMT) on Monday, 15 April resulted in the deaths of more than 1,500 people, which made it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
