Survivors who also Survived the Lusitania Sinking

Postby Aaron2010 » Tue May 07, 2013 4:10 pm

Today is the 98th anniversary of the Lusitania disaster. Does anybody know how many Titanic survivors were also on the Lusitania when she sank? Here is my research so far.

- William Chapman Peters. His family says he survived both disasters.

- Lady Duff Gordon. She survived the Titanic disaster and newspaper reports said she had booked to sail on the Lusitania's final voyage but she canceled at the last moment due to ill health.

- August Weikman. He survived the Titanic and later became the Chief barber on the Lusitania. I don't know how long he stayed on the Lusitania.

- Alfred Vanderbilt. He died in the Lusitania sinking. He was supposed to sail on the Titanic but he canceled at the last moment. He stepped off the boat train to Southampton. It was too late to unload his luggage. He told his servant to look after his luggage on the Titanic. He went down with the ship.
