Mr Thomas W. McCawley

Mr Thomas W. McCawley, 36, gave his address as Camden Place, Southampton.

He had spent time living in Cape Town, South Africa. He returned to Britain from Durban, South Africa, arriving in Southampton on 13 January 1912 aboard the Saxon of the Union Castle Line and was described as a physical educator.

A survivor described McCawley as 'a ruddy cheeked, spry little man in white flannels', he kept to his post while the passengers waited on deck and eventually found their way into his gym. He told one survivor that he would not wear a lifebelt, because it would slow him down as he swam.

He died in the sinking.
