Violet Jessop (1887-1971) was a maritime stewardess and nurse who survived the sinking of both the Titanic and Britannic. She worked aboard ships into her sixties, traveling all over the world. After her last voyage, she lived the rest of her life in Suffolk, England.
Aside from the disasters, there is much in her memoirs to enjoy;
from her tales of travel, to the ships themselves, and to the many
characters she met in a fascinating lifetime at sea. * Sailing
