On this one hundred and second anniversary of the sinking of R.M.S. Titanic on April 15th 1912, it is interesting to see this example of the recognition awarded by the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society in 1912, to Doctor Frank Edward McGee of R.M.S. Carpathia. The illustrated award reads as follows:
“Liverpool Shipwreck & Humane Society Incorporated November 2nd 1888.
At a meeting of the Committee of the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society held at the Underwriters Room, Exchange Buildings, Liverpool, on the fourth day of July 1912.
It was Resolved Unanimously that the best thanks be presented to Doctor Frank Edward McGee of the “R.M.S. Carpathia” for
Praiseworthy and Humane service to the survivors of the “R.M.S. Titanic” which foundered on April 15th 1912″
There will be on the 26th of April 2014 at 2.00 pm, at Farlam, Cumbria, the birthplace of Joseph Bell, a commemorative service to celebrate the completed conservation of his gravestone memorial to which all are welcome.
