    The survivors sang in the lifeboats to keep their spirits up. A popular hymn that echoed across the water was 'Pull for the Shore, Sailor' and a number of lifeboats joined in the chorus.

    I think there were also stories of The Countess of Rothes singing at the tiller to distract the children from the screams as best she could.
