Titanic sailor faced life-long humiliation after the tragic sinking
London, Aug 17 (ANI): Relatives of the sailor, who was steering the Titanic when it sank, have revealed about the life-long humiliation he faced following the disaster.
The family of Robert Hichens has kept quiet about the 1912 tragedy for 96-years.
However, now niece Barbara Clarke, 83, has revealed how Hichens was branded a coward, rejected for jobs, drank heavily and finally jailed for shooting a man.
Speaking at a new Titanic exhibition in Torquay, Devon, she said Hichens was at the wheel of the liner.
He was ordered to take a lifeboat away from the sinking ship to save the people in it but was later accused of abandoning others in the water.
"He was publicly humiliated. He didn't deserve that," The Sun quoted Clarke, as saying. (ANI)
