The linen-backed testimonial was passed to Rostron's lifelong friends, Louis and Augusta Ogden, who were passengers on the Carpathia in April 1912, and is thence by direct descent. It magnificently lists all of this famed seafarer's many achievements and honours.
The opportunity to own a citation to Captain Rostron that specifically names the Titanic is a remote occurrence indeed.
Decorated with dolphins about its opening initial, it reads: 'In Recognition of the Fine Character and Outstanding Seamanship of Sir Arthur Rostron, KBE, RD, RDR, Aide-de-Camp to King George V, United States Medal of Congress, Chevalier Legion d'Honneur, France; Commodore of the Cunard Line Fleet, Captain of the Berengaria, Ambassador of Good Will between Great Britain and America, as a Tribute to His Historic Heroism when Captain of the Carpathia at the Scene of the TITANIC disaster and In Appreciation of his interest in those who have been privileged to travel in ships under his command, the Undersigned have established a Trust Fund in his name as A Testimonial of His Accomplishments and the High Regard in Which He Is Held. MCMXXX (1930).'

with her husband, James when their ship diverted to rescue Titanic's survivors. The Birma was about half the length of Titanic at just over 400 feet, with a single funnel and four masts. The ship was en route to Russia when she received Titanic's distress call and steamed towards her position about 100 miles away. On arrival, Birma's wireless operators found it difficult to obtain information from Carpathia as evidenced by Birma's procés verbal log which Henry Aldridge & Son had the privilege of selling several years ago for over £30000. Birma searched the area for survivors but finding none and having observed Carpathia's departure, discontinued its search.

222.    R.M.S. TITANIC: SIDNEY DANIELS ARCHIVE.
A unique letter written to Third Class Steward Sidney Daniels on April 2nd
1912, postmarked Portsmouth later Belfast April 4th 1912. Addressed Daniels, Stewards Department, S.S. Titanic, Belfast. Letter is written over three sides and is faded and water stained. The water staining is due to being immersed in the North Atlantic whilst on Sidney Daniels's person as he escaped the Titanic. Later newspaper accounts by Mr Daniels which are included in the lot offer the explanation in his own words. "I held onto a boat davit ready to jump overboard and I jumped into the darkness and swimming away as far as I could for how long I don't know but I found a life buoy with a man clinging to it. I held on to that for a while and as I turned back to look I could see the stern of the Titanic standing almost straight up in the air. I knew the suction could drag us down and I suggested to the other man that we moved away. He did not answer and away I went. Eventually I saw a capsized lifeboat with several men clinging to it. Standing on this I pulled myself up on the keel and sat there just out of the water".
NB. The letter documented is one of the few examples to have survived being carried by a surviving crew member. Provenance by direct descent.

223.    **R.M.S. CARPATHIA: An exceptional pair of letters written by Eleanor Danforth onboard Carpathia during the voyage where she picked up Titanic's survivors. The principal is a dramatic account written over eleven sides on Royal Mail Steamship Carpathia stationery and dated April 17th 1912 and offers the reader a first person account of life onboard the Carpathia and the rescue of Titanic's survivors, an abridged version is below. (sic)
I waked up about 2:30 to wonder why there was so much running around and talking in the corridor. Then I realized that the engine had quickened the speed and it flashed into my mind that possibly we were hurrying to some ship in distress. I tried to get it out of my mind, but I finally rang for the steward and then minutes later we were dressing with all haste. I went on deck, and even in the darkness I could see the glimmer of the iceberg they had struck--then some five miles away. Shortly, to my disgust, the little English doctor very politely drove me back to my stateroom. However, I soon discovered a port hole in the passageway where I could
See, and there I watched the first boat come in, the people climbing the ladder up the side of the ship or being pulled up in a swing sort of thing. A bag was let down for the babies and children. Shortly after we went up on deck again, and the boats came in one by one.
We seemed to be so perfectly helpless, there didn't seem to be much to do except stand around and watch. I did manage to get hold of two little French children (about 1½ and 3 years old) who came on half naked and got them dressed and fed and warm and taken care of. Then, I have given away underclothes, a shirt, waist, and so forth, but as I had taken as few things as I possibly could get along with, and most of those weren't suitable for what was wanted, I couldn't do much in that line.
Everything and everywhere is filled with people. We have two people in our stateroom - a girl and her mother who are both ever so nice, and we were fortunate in having people who have the rest of their family on board as they are much more cheerful. The staterooms are all full--people sleeping in the bathtubs, on the floors, on and under dining room tables where mattresses have been placed, men all mixed up with each other in the smoking room.
One woman was overheard blowing up our steward because there was kerosene in her glass of water. She said she didn't come on board this ship to get poisoned. They have had wonderfully good treatment on board this ship. Everyone has done everything-given away clothes and doubled up in their own staterooms and all kinds of other nice things. They say that when the REPUBLIC went down the rescuing passengers and crew were horrid to the rescued ones. (Stet)
The second is written on April 13th 1912 on Carpathia stationery, also included is a period newspaper cutting describing Ms Danforth's experiences.

224.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Important photographic archive belonging to R. D. "Westy" Legate 4th officer of the C.S. Mackay-Bennett, a cable laying ship that took part in the recovery of over 300 bodies of those lost on the Titanic, including that of bandleader Wallace Hartley. Material relating to the Mackay Bennett and this chapter in her history is extremely scarce. However this archive comes directly from an officer onboard during the Titanic recovery mission, making it exceptionally important.

Principal an original photograph of Titanic victims onboard the deck of the Mackay-Bennett. Rev. Hind can clearly be seen in the foreground conducting a burial service and crewmen can be observed consigning a body into the ocean. A canvas bag for body number 177 can clearly be seen. This photo illustrates the horrific conditions that would have been experienced on deck. Handwritten notation to border. Reverend Hind presided over 166 bodies buried at sea aboard the Mackay-Bennett. He indicated that for each body, he would offer the same prayer: For as much as it has pleased Almighty God to take unto Himself the soul of our dear brother departed, we therefore commit his body to the deep to be turned to corruption; looking for the resurrection of the body (when the sea shall give up her dead) and the life of the world come, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto His glorious body, according to the mighty working whereby He is able to subdue all things to Himself.
Despite the number of bodies buried at sea, visual records of the burial and service, such as this photograph, are almost non-existent, even in period publications. Reverend Hind found it curious that White Star would have chartered the Mackay-Bennett to recover the bodies while not sending a company agent to accompany the vessel. This was the case for all the vessels chartered by the company for this purpose. Body No. 177, the number which can be seen stencilled onto the canvas bag in the image, pertained to crewman William Peter Mayo. 4½ins. x 4ins.
The photograph is contained within a period album of personal and other marine images. The archive also includes a number of photographs of Legate. two in uniform (11). includes two albums full of photographs. A superb collection.

225.    R.M.S. TITANIC: AN EXCEPTIONAL POSTAL FACING SLIP FROM TITANIC INTENDED NEW YORK.
This postal facing slip was recovered from the body of Titanic postal clerk Oscar Scott Woody by the crew of the cable ship Mackay-Bennett on April 22, 1912, being a single page slip, buff, measuring 5ins. x 3ins., denoting mail destination "Sealed Distributions Customs, Second Div. N.Y.P.O. 8 From SEA POST LETTERS," with the "8" handwritten in blue wax pencil. Stamped "O.S. Woody" and "TITANIC," Woody has "bumped" the slip with Titanic's unique transatlantic postal cancellation which reads, "TRANSATLANTIC POST OFFICE 7, AP 10, [19] 12." The "7" refers to the number assigned to Titanic's on-board post office within the transatlantic postal system. The number was retired by the service after Titanic was lost.

Titanic was transporting over 3000 sacks of mail containing an estimated 7 million letters. As part of the sorting process each of Titanic's five postal clerks, including Woody, would place a facing slip on a bundle of sacks to denote their intended destination. It is believed that there were more than 30 different pre-marked destinations contained on Titanic's facing slips; however, only certain of those have been documented since only examples found on Woody's body have been recovered. Perhaps Woody had taken them for safeguarding believing that mail sorting on the ship would ultimately be resumed.

While this example appears to be the eighth facing slip Woody had designated as intended for the New York Post Office, we are not aware of any other specific examples available for public sale and know of only one other such example extant. Woody's No. 9 N.Y.P.O. facing slip can be seen on the Smithsonian Institution's on-line postal museum here: . The facing slip offered here, which contains the handwritten No. 8, thus appears to be unique.

All five postal clerks died in the disaster. Only the bodies of Woody and fellow American postal clerk John Starr March were recovered. According to the logbook of the Mackay-Bennett, the entry for August 22, 1912 indicates that 27 bodies were recovered that day, all of which had lifebelts and floated very high in the water. While these facts obviously contributed to the survival of this facing slip, there is nevertheless a water stain within the top one-third of the slip evidencing its submersion in the North Atlantic.

Woody's body No. 167 was returned to his widow along with a stencilled canvas bag containing his personal effects. The contents thereof, including this facing slip, were donated to the Freemasons branch of which Woody had been a member. It was thereafter sold to raise funds. Henry Aldridge and Son sold Woody's postal keys for over £100000 in 2007, still a record sum for a set of keys. These are now part of the Smithsonian collection.

This is an incredibly rare and unique opportunity to acquire an important part of Titanic's story as well as an important piece of postal history. This facing slip was on Titanic, in the North Atlantic and on the recovery ship Mackay-Bennett and contains an original ink stamp of Titanic's special on-board postmark representing one of the clearest known strikes of Titanic's sea post No. 7, as well as evidence of its submersion in the water.
£15000-20000
226.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Rare notice relating to the Belfast "Titanic Hero Memorial".

227.    R.M.S. TITANIC SECOND OFFICER CHARLES LIGHTOLLER: One of the rarest Titanic menus in existence, the first meal ever served on Titanic during her sea trials dated April 2nd 1912. The postcard size menu is on cream card and embossed with gilt Oceanic Steam Navigation Company logo and beneath a red White Star Line burgee in relief. The full menu includes a variety of foods - Consommé Mirrette, Cream of Chicken, Salmon, Golden Plover on Toast, Peaches Imperial and Pudding Sans Souci. The menu was owned by Second Officer Charles Lightoller, the highest ranking surviving officer from the Titanic. He gave the menu to his wife as a souvenir as he departed from Southampton on April 10th 1912.
R.M.S Titanic was due to leave Belfast for Southampton on Monday 1st April, however due to poor weather this was postponed until the following day. Tuesday 2nd April was the first day of Titanic's sea trials, which began at 10am. She sailed all day and then returned to port for some last-minute cargo. During this day the crew and the officers enjoyed their first meal on board the ship before she was joined by the passengers. John Eaton and Charles Haas, leading Titanic scholars and historians, note in their book Titanic Triumph and Tragedy "Lunch was now ready but there was one more test to be conducted. While the ship travelled at 20½ knots on a straight course the helm was ordered hard over. Heeling slightly Titanic turned a full circle whose diameter was measured at 3850 feet or a bit less than 4½ lengths of the ship, during the ships turn, the ships turn was around 2100 feet. While lunch was being served in the main dining saloon the vessel was put at dead slow, and such observers, representatives and officers as could be spared sat down for their meal, still conversing, comparing, exchanging data, following lunch the major stopping test was conducted." It is believed only one other example of an April 2nd survives. It belonged to Titanic's Fifth Officer Harold Lowe. He wrote a notation on the bottom "This is first meal ever served on board". Henry Aldridge and Son sold this menu 14 years ago, however the bottom of the Lowe menu was removed so this is believed to be the only complete example. This menu is one of the most important examples of its type in existence today, simply superb a true blue chip item.

Thomas A Mullin Third Class Steward was born in Dumfries Scotland. After school his early career was as a pattern weaver. A failing eyesight condition forced him to change occupations and go to sea. He joined the St Louisa ship owned by American Lines, a company owned by IMMC co-
incidentally also the owners of White Star Line. Reports of the day say he made a number of transatlantic trips and was earmarked for promotion. He transferred to Titanic as a Third Class steward and was allocated badge No 32. He supported his grandmother, brother and sisters, both his parents having died tragically young within months of each other. His body was recovered by Minia and allocated No 323, the last body recovered by Minia or Mackay-Bennett. Nova Scotia Public Records confirm badge No 32 and a memo book as some of the items recovered with his body. He is interred at Row 2 Fairlawn Cemetery. This is one of the rarest three dimensional items from a Titanic crewman to be auctioned in recent years.

They have remained with the same vendor since then. Hemming gave evidence at the English Enquiry "At about 7.15pm on 14th April Mr Murdoch told Hemming to go forward and see the fore scuttle hatch closed as we are in the vicinity of ice and there is a glow coming from that and I want everything dark before the bridge". On the night of the disaster he was woken up by the ship's joiner and boatswain at midnight and went to the boat deck to assist in the loading and lowering of lifeboats. When all the boats were away he went up to the bridge but everyone had left so he went to the roof of the officers' quarters where he and another seaman tried to free collapsible Boat B. 6th Officer Moody told them that the boat was not needed and as little time was left Hemming lowered himself into the water by climbing down the walls five minutes before the Titanic sunk. He was picked up by lifeboat number four which saved eight men and at around 3.45am with boat number twelve they rescued thirty men who were standing on the upturned hull of collapsible Boat B. There are numerous references to Hemming in "A Night to Remember" and Geoffrey Marcus's "The Maiden Voyage", 1969. 2¾ins.

"Dear Mr Streeton, my letter will know doubt give rise alarm, but my hasty departure from London I trust will not be so to you. I will write to you from New York and detail you matters concerning myself. I am going to Toronto to a berth and I trust my new venture will clean the past which I've created by my own folly. My wife is in England. Do not write to her. The parting has been bitter but she has submitted to this for our future welfare. I shall pen you my desires and intentions in the week and post at New York. Do not refer to my wife my letter to you in the chance of you meeting her, yours still faithfully H. Beauchamp".

Mr Beauchamp died in the sinking.

To Percy James
I received yours on vessel today, have posted mother & Mrs Lingham from Cherbourg. This I think will go out from Queenstown tomorrow. I've been quite alright - but now feel dead tired & more fit for bed than anything. Have to go to dinner-tea in half an hour, Percy to.
Mr Peters spent about an hour on the vessel + they might easily have spent another without waste of time. The first class apartments are really magnificent & unless you had first seen them you would think the second class were the same. We were due to reach Cherbourg at 5pm, but not there yet altho the mail is cleared. I think I'd best try & get some postcards of the vessel. My fellow passenger hasn't turned up yet, so if she is coming it will be from Cherbourg or Queenstown. I was advised to eat well so had a good lunch - two clergymen opposite me at table. No sign of sea sickness yet - I mustn't crow. Hedley & P.W. both kissed me goodbye so I wasn't made to feel too lonely. HP set PW the example tho' it was done quite as a matter of course without a word. I've only sent Mrs Lingham a card I'm so fearfully tired I do not feel I can write more tonight or I would write to Elsie - The only thing I object to is new paint so far.
Must clear & have a wash now. Will pop this in the post in case I'm sea sick tomorrow. PW brought a box of chocolates - shouldn't wonder if I'm like Jim Buss & get it the other way. Give my love to all enquirers - must go.
Much love Kate.

It is interesting to note Kate was seated opposite two Clergymen. Father Byles, Rev. Harper and Rev. Robert Bateman were all Second Class passengers so its conceivable she could have been sat with one of them.
Kate was saved in lifeboat no 9 when the Carpathia picked up her lifeboat. She was the last to be unloaded due to her fear of heights. £20000-25000
