We regret to hear that Mr. William Penny, eldest son of Mrs. A. Penny, of 4, Waverley Villas, Cheriton Road, was among the victims in the catastrophe to the Titanic.
Mr. Penny had been a medical steward in the service of the White Star Line for some six years, and was on the Titanic on its first and last trip from Southampton where he resided. He leaves a widow and one child.
Sincere sympathy will be felt with the bereaved ones in their heavy loss.
At almost every church in Folkestone and the district on Sunday last there were allusions to the disaster from the pulpit, and special hymns and other music were rendered.
