Have your say

As you might know, next week is the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic. The News will be writing about the disaster of course, but would like to know if there are relatives of anyone who went down with the ship, or survived the sinking living in our local area.

If you could contact me as soon as possible by e-mail or drop a line into the office at Hilsea I would be grateful. Thank you.
