Millvina Dean bus takes British Titanic Society members to annual convention at Sea City in Southampton

Tuesday, April 11 2017
 
Members of the British Titanic Society made their way to Southampton’s Sea City Museum this week, just in time for the 105th anniversary of the famous liner’s fateful maiden voyage. 
 
Unilink provided transport for the xx society members as they arrived for their annual convention in the Southampton operator’s ‘Millvina Dean’ bus. 
 
“We named a special double decker after Millvina Dean in a ceremony four years ago,” said Unilink operations manager Paul Coyne. “At barely two months old, Miss Dean was the youngest person on board the stricken cruise liner when it sank on 15 April 1912.
 
“At Unilink, we are proud of our connections with Southampton, its community and its history - and we want to be a part of it. Many of the city’s residents at the time were on-board this famous ship during its maiden voyage, and we are grateful for the work the British Titanic Society does to keep the memory of those who sailed with the Titanic alive for future generations. We were delighted to be involved by providing transport in our dedicated Millvina Dean bus.” 
 
John Creamer from the British Titanic Society added: “We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from Unilink. Our convention in Southampton is incredible important to our members. Visiting Sea City Museum helps bring the events of that fateful night alive, and greatly contributes to the success of our annual convention.”
