TITANIC's Departure Re-enactment 12:00 10 April 2012

Photos of the Flotilla:-
On the 100th Anniversary of RMS TITANIC's departure from Southampton on her ill fated voyage a memorial event was held at the Ocean Terminal overlooking TITANIC's berth 43/44, attended by relatives of those aboard and civic dignitaries. A wreath was thrown in the water and at 12:00 after a minute's silence, the exact moment TITANIC slipped her moorings, a recording of her whistle sounded around the docks followed by sirens and whistles of other ships and boats in port.
A re-enactment of TITANIC's departure, with Tug Tender CALSHOT playing 'Titanic', took place with a flotilla sailing off down Southampton Water. ss SHIELDHALL, OCEAN SCENE, PRINCESS CAROLINE & RED JET 4 were among them along with a fire-tug SVITZER SURREY. WILLENDEAVOUR & WILLPOWER assisted CALSHOT.
CALSHOT & ss SHIELDHALL flew the White Star Line flag and SHIELDHALL & STAVROS S NIARCHOS [who remained alongside] were flying the Pilot Jack on their forestaff. SHIELDHALL was flying Pilot Exemption too.
