An Unbelievable Story of Survival…

Posted on August 21, 2013

In 1911 at age 23, Violet Constance Jessop was working as a steward on the RMS Olympic. It collided with the HMS Hawke. She survived.

In 1912, Violet again worked as a stewardess, this time on the RMS Titanic. It infamously collided with an iceberg, the ship sank, and she survived.

In 1916, during the First World War Violet Jessop was working for the British Red Cross onboard the HMHS Britannic. There was an explosion. The ship sank. She survived.

Upon leaving her cabin on the HMHS Britannic, Violet made sure she grabbed her toothbrush, stating later it was the one thing she missed most immediately following the sinking of the Titanic!
