Prayers and wreaths for Titanic's dead
Monday 16 April 2012
With prayers, a hymn and a moment of silence broken by a ship's deep whistle, passengers and crew on a memorial trip marked 100 years to the moment since the Titanic took 1,514 people to a watery grave.
In the north Atlantic, they lined the decks of the MS Balmoral, a cruise ship that has been retracing the route of the doomed liner, at the spot where the Titanic went down in the early hours of 15 April, 1912, after a collision with an iceberg.
Three floral wreaths were cast on to the waves as the ship's whistle sounded in the dark.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
