MERIDIAN broadcaster Fred Dinenage will be hosting a poignant event to commemorate the Titanic.

The event, at Ocean Terminal, Southampton, will be especially moving for Fred as his great-uncle, James Richard Dinenage, was one of Titanic’s stewards and perished along with more than 1,500 passengers and crew.

At midday on April 10, exactly 100 years since she set sail on her maiden voyage to New York, a recording of the ship’s whistle will sound around the port.

Titanic’s departure will be re-enacted when the tug tender Calshot, which was built in the same era to manoeuvre ocean liners, sails from 43/44 berth, followed by a flotilla of craft.
