Titanic story update

In a somewhat uplifting end to the story of the oldest Titanic survivor having to sell her memorabilia from the ill-fated ship, 96-year-old Millvina Dean actually raised some £30,000 at auction, rather than the £3,000 that had been estimated. You can read the BBC News story here.

hahahah andy! it's great that she made that much, too bad the TS didn't win the bids, maybe the winners will give them back to her anyway? then she could just leave them to them in her will.everybody wins, then.
