Captain and Mrs. Hosking of Shaldon have received a telegram from Mr. Bock, Captain Hoskings cousin in America, who had travelled about 300 miles to meet Mr. George Fox Hosking, the Senior Third Engineer on the Titanic who he was hoping would be among the survivors on board the Carpathia.
The telegram was handed in at New York at 3.45 and ran as follows, Went on board Carpathia. Saw Officer of Titanic and Captain of Carpathia who told me there were no engineers saved. Mourn with you. Bock.'
Mr G F Hosking leaves a widow and three children who reside at Itchen, Southampton. He was formerly on the Olympic and had been with the White Star Line over 10 years.
