Titanic - diary of a survivor. As I made my way to the top deck I heard the huge roar of the ships mighty engines, the massive engines pulled out of port heading for the new world.

Extracts from this document...


It all began on 10th of April in 1912 he continued, I was young and ambitious, and had just got my hands on a 3rd class ticket. At port I saw the most amazing site; the titanic was huge even biblical in size, "882 feet 9 inches long" said a man in the distance.

Excited I ran to get on the ship "ticket please" said the stern ticket inspector. I handed him the ticket and proceeded onto the ship, such a magnificent site it was to behold, crystal chandlers hung from the ceiling and silk tapestries covered the walls.

The atmosphere in the boat was one of sorrow women and children crying for there lost family members.
