I am wondering how many items, either recovered from, or seen in the debris field, can be identified with specific people. We have Peuchen's wallet, Saalfeld's perfume, Haisman's pocketwatch and Beckwith's (??) watch (??), Steward Broome's white coat etc. How many others are there?

Cheers

Paul

I've found two more: Miss Meanwell's bag and a letter from Mr.Rosenshine. It seems funny how many things recovered from the wreck can be linked to people on board....

Cheers

Papers have been found belonging to Franz Pulbaum, and Lawrence Beesley's receipt left with the purser number 208 (we know this thanks to his recalling his number in his book).

Like you mentioned, we have Arthur Peuchen's buisness card,plus Lawrence Beesley's purser stub, Athol Broome's steward jacket (with his name still handwritten on collar), Howard Irwin and Henry Sutehall's items, etc, etc..

I belive in 2000 they recovered a smoking pipe believed to have belonged to one of the officers.
