Mr Emile Richard, 23, from St. Jean d'Angeleys, Charente, boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a second class passenger. His last place of abode was Paris, and he was going to Montreal, Canada. Having completed his service in the army, his father was sending him on vacation to Canada. When he returned to France he was to work at the family distillery.
