A fascinating talk at: Titanic Exhibition Bond St. Chelmsford CM1 1GD

Senior Operator Jack Phillips and Harold Bride Maroni Officers aboard Titanic

Tim Wander, author and Marconi historian, will tell the story of the brave Marconi Radio operators who stayed at their posts to send the liner’s distress calls. In doing so they saved the lives of over 700 souls. Their equipment was built in Chelmsford at the Hall St works and they were partly trained there. Their story defines the legend that has become the Titanic. Tim will recreate the last moments inside the Titanic’s radio room - and tell the ultimate fate of the men who proudly wore the Marconi Marine badge.
