HONOURING OUR TITANIC HERO
SIR – Remembering Joseph Bell, chief engineer of the RMS Titanic, who was born in Farlam, near Brampton:
A headstone in Farlam churchyard near Brampton: The headstone marks the death of Joseph Bell from Farlam who was the chief engineer on the RMS Titanic.
He was a grand lad that,
So I eared tell,
A grand lad that,
Aye Joseph Bell.
For when that damn great iceberg struck
An all a t’world’s foundations shook,
He kept that ship alive did he, or
Mare’d a been lost to the crashin sea.
Aye, a grand lad that,
So I eared tell.
God bless his soul, Joseph Bell.
