Diary of a sailor who retrieved bodies of Titanic victims from the ocean. Fine weather started to pick up bodies at six a.m. and continued all day till five thirty P.M. Recovered fifty one bodies, forty six men four women and one baby. Burried twenty four men at sea at eight fifteen P.M. Rev Canon Hinds in attendance also Ships Company. Bodies in good state but badly bruised by being knocked about in the water.
Seems to me that there's just a wee bit too much Titanic porn floating (sic) about at the moment. World recession and a desire to live in times when the Toffs (according to Julian Fellowes) were decent chaps (as opposed to Cameron, Osborne & Johnson). What we need now, of course, is a decent war, none of that cowardly Johnny Foreigner stuff.
