PRAISES HEROISM OF THE SAILORS


Worcester Evening Gazette

Saturday 20th April 1912


NEW YORK, April 19- Heroism of the English sailors who went down with the ill-fated Titanic was the one thing which most impressed Paul Cheveret, the Canadian sculptor, who left the steamship in one of the first boats lowered. He said that there was no sign of cowardice among the male passengers or crew.

"I was off the Titanic before there was an real panic," Mr. Cheveret said. " I will take my hat off to the English seamen who went down with their ship."
