Mr Thomas Patrick Dillon
Mr Thomas Patrick Dillon, 34, was born in Liverpool on 18th March 1878.
When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as the Sailors' Home, (Southampton). His last ship had been the Oceanic. As a Trimmer he received monthly wages of £5 10s.
He said he was in the water - on the ship's deck directly prior to jumping with Denny Corcoran, Greaser: John Bannon and a man called Mason (no first name indicated). The only survivor of this small party was Dillon himself, the others died. Some people state that the Mason referred to was F. A. R. Mason, but it was more likely to be J. Mason (who was in the same watch as the others, whereas Frank Mason was in another watch).
Two passengers, Mrs Stephenson and Miss Eustis gave this account to Colonel Archibald Gracie which he published in his book:
According to Michael Davie:
Dillon later testified at the British Inquiry.
