A set of rusty keys for a locker on the Titanic that belonged to a cabin steward who survived the disaster are being sold by his family.

The keys are expected to fetch up to £60,000 when they go under the hammer on Saturday in Devizes, Wiltshire.

They belonged to Sidney Daniels, an 18-year-old third class steward who was the last surviving crew member of the luxury liner's doomed maiden voyage.

They are the only known examples for concurrent lockers on the ship and were for F Deck where third-class passengers resided.

Each key has a matching brass tag stamped locker 41 F Deck and locker 42 F Deck on a single ring and were in Mr Daniels's pocket when the ship hit an iceberg and sank in April 1912.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge, of Henry Aldridge & Son, said: "These keys are exceptional as they are the only known examples belonging to concurrent lockers.
