Information is being sought on the arrival of the items from the Titanic’s sister ship at the White Swan in Alnwick.

Historically, the British Titanic Society is held in Southampton, but for 2018 it is planning to hold the convention at the White Swan.

The hotel is home to the First Class Lounge and other artefacts from the Olympic, the Titanic’s sister ship. It was purchased by the White Swan when the Olympic was broken up in the mid 1930s.

Bob Angel, who helps to organise the convention, is researching the purchase, acquisition and installation of the Olympic items with the intention of producing a small exhibition during the convention next year.

If anyone has any information or photos of the lounge purchase, transportation or installation at the hotel, contact 01494 786226.
