Winchester's Melancholy Interest

Hampshire Observer

April 1912

Although there were no Winchester people so far as we have ascertained among the passengers on the Titanic, yet Winchester has a melancholy interest in the disaster, especially as it affects the ill-fated crew. Among the second-class passengers on board was Mr. H. P. Hodges, the well-known pianoforte and music dealer of Southampton, who is brother to Mrs. W. Hicks, of Meredith, Hatherley Road. Mr. Hodges was in Winchester only on Good Friday to see his relatives before his departure for a trip for the benefit of his health. As no news of his name being among the list of survivors has been received, it is feared that he met his death with the other victims of the disaster.
