The Titanic's band

A poem by my grandfather, David J Davidson, penned on the foundering of the Titanic and sold for One Penny for the Relief fund.

any thing about Titanic gets to me Rab, Thanks.
Kirkcudbright must be your ancesteral home, if one used there imagination they could see Kirkcudbright when sailing out of Belfast Lough.
Do you have a date on that script.
Cheers,
Ted

For Ted: I never knew my grandfather David James Davidson, he died aged 48 in 1925 but I believe he wrote this very shortly after the foundering of Titanic.

Sorry you did,nt know your Grandfather Rab, I was fortunate in knowing mine.
He died in 1953.
When I was very young, probably 4yo he told me the story of the unsinkable ship he helped build and how it hit an iceberg and sank, I have been infatuated about Titanic ever since.
Loved your grandfathers writing
Cheers
Ted
