TITANIC SURVIVOR LOSES £3,000 BROOCH

A diamond brooch worth about £,000 belonging to Mrs. J.J. Brown, and American visitor to Deauville, which was the sole article saved from her jewels in the wreck of the Titanic, was stolen two days ago from one of the leading hotels.

Mrs Brown had spent most of the morning in packing her trunks for departure, and on returning after luncheon found that her baggage had been rifled and that the brooch was missing.

She was in the Titanic when it went down after striking an iceberg in mid-Atlantic in 1911 [sic]. She was flung into a boat, and the brooch, which she had been wearing, was the only valuable that she saved.
