Titanic’s menu up for sale in Devizes

A menu for the last meal served on the doomed liner SS Titanic is the star lot in the centenary memorabilia sale at the Devizes salerooms of Henry Aldridge & Son.

The menu is dated April 14, 1912, the night the liner struck an iceberg, and is expected to fetch up to £100,000.

The menu was on the table of first-class passenger Dr Washington Dodge, a prominent banker from San Francisco, who was travelling to America with his wife, Ruth, and son, Washington Junior.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge, a recognised authority on the Titanic, said: “The sale, on March 31, will be 100 years to the day after Titanic was finished at Harland & Wolff.

“Any menu from the Titanic is highly prized. This lot offers collectors the opportunity of a lifetime.”
