Florence Searle, a laundress, who appeared in court dressed in deep black, was sentenced three months’ hard labour at Southampton on Tuesday for obtaining £2 from the mayor’s Titanic Fund by false pretence.

It was stated that apparently in great distress she represented herself as the widow of a trimmer named White, who survived the wreck, and told the court that he was a single man.
