Lifejacket from Titanic survivor goes on display

A lifejacket - believed to have been used by a survivor of the Titanic - has gone on display in a Hampshire museum.

It's thought it could have been thrown from the liner, Carpathia, which went to help the victims of the disaster. Like other debris from the Titanic it should have been destroyed - but it wasn't. It is now on display in Southampton's Sea City Museum.

Maria Newbery, Sea City Museum, explains:

The world's most valuable biscuit is to be sold at auction in Wiltshire. It could fetch up to £10,000.

The Spillers and Bakers 'Pilot' biscuit survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. The biscuit was part of a survival kit stored within one of the lifeboats and was kept as a souvenir.

It will go under the hammer at Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneers in Devizes, Wiltshire on 24 October.

The biscuit was kept by a passenger on board the SS Carpathia which went to the aid of survivors from Titanic.

He put the biscuit in an envelope with a note, saying the snack was from Titanic.
