When the Titanic, left Southampton for New York on Wednesday 10 April 1912 it was the largest ship in the world. On board were 922 passengers which later increased to 1316 after calls at Cherbourg and Queenstown. With her crew of 885 the ship carried a total of 2,208 people. Although she was little more than half full, her 20 lifeboats could only carry about half of the people on board. At 23:40hrs on the night of Sunday 14 April the ship struck an iceberg to the south-east of Newfoundland, which fatally damaged the hull. It sank two hours and forty minutes later with the loss of more than 1,500 lives.
