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.
