Mr. George Fox Hoskings (sic) was the eldest son of the above named, and had been in the White Star Companys service over ten years. He was second engineer in the Olympic at the time of the collision with H.M.S. Hawke, and from among many whom were his seniors he was selected for the Titanic to occupy the post of senior third engineer.
He was a very efficient and capable officer, and held in high esteem by the company, and was rising by promotion rapidly. Captain Hoskings (father) recently retired from a long connection with the mercantile marine, and had often boasted that he would yet see his son a captain of one of the companys ships. He was 36 years of age, and has left a widow and three children, who reside at Hitching (sic), Southampton. Much sympathy is felt for Captain Hosking and family both at Teignmouth and Shaldon, where they are greatly respected.
