Titanic launch ticket stub could fetch up to 10,000 pounds

A ticket stub from the VIP enclosure of the launch of the Titanic is to be sold at auction later this month .

The ticket stub belonged to Harland & Wolff secretary Charlotte Irwin.

Miss Irwin was just 20 and worked in the drafting office at the Belfast firm's shipyard when Titanic was being built.

And when the ocean liner was launched on May 31 1911, Miss Irwin was in an executive box set aside for specially invited White Star Line and Harland & Wolff staff - giving her a great view of the Titanic sliding down the ways into the water.

Miss Irwin kept the ticket, No 116, as a souvenir of a memorable day.
