TITANIC survivor Mr. Ernest Allen, of Salisbury Road, Highfield, Southampton, a stoker in the ill-fated liner, has died at his home at the age of 80. Mr. Allen nearly lost his life in an attempt to save his younger brother, who was at sea for the first time as a bell boy in the Titanic. Unfortunately, the boy was too far below decks to be rescued. After serving at sea, Mr. Allen was a stevedore in the docks before he took up work at the Ordnance Survey Office in London Road, as a stoker.
