George Fox Hosking was my father's father (my paternal grandfather). You could add that, prior to his secondment to the Titanic, he was 2nd. engineer on her sister ship, the Olympic. I am proud that all Engineers stayed at their posts. By keeping the pumps burning, it is estimated that they prolonged the sinking by 2 hours, saving many lives. You may also have observed that their efforts also kept the generators powering the distress transmitter and lights burning until the end.
