4th April 1912

On This Day

Today, Titanic arrived at Southampton at 12.40am. Assisted by five Red Funnel tugs the new liner was warped into the White Star Dock and tied up alongside berth No. 44.

Due to a coal strike and the difficult and dirty task of transferring bunker coal from other vessels into Titanic and the time required to clean the vessel, it was decided not to open her for public inspection as was the custom before a first voyage. Instead she was dressed overall with signal flags for the benefit of the people of Southampton.
