Question is: Do you offer a Titanic survivee ice for his whiskey?


Do you mean 'survivee' as 'someone who are survived, that is, a dead person'?


I've heard of l'esprit de l'escalier before, but seven years is pushing it a bit.

I met her once - seems a tough old bird. Might be a year or two in her yet.


More than one but less than two, then. Yeah, I'm sorry to see her go too, and I actually thought she might hang on to make three figures. She enjoyed herself though.

Goodnight, Millvina - time to meet your Dad at last.

Uh god I feel like weeping, I was actually planning on writing her a letter... not gonna get the chance anymore.... she was actually a really nice sincere old lady... why do people like her have to die and Thatcher continues to haunt us?

This is a pretty significant one in terms of last survivors of something.

Eliza Gladys Milvina Dean is indeed still with us. Born 2/2/1912, hence was 10 weeks old when the Titanic sank on 15/4/1912 (not 1908!).


I stand corrected, thanks RK. It is never a good idea to drink whiskey while researching :banghead:


Perhaps we could now close this thread, thus protecting future generations from one of the worst pieces of advice I have ever encountered.

That'll save Kate Winslet a few quid then.

Millvina Dean is no more, she died this morning.

So how many survivors are left now?
