Doomed Titanic passenger’s postcard up for auction with heartbreaking message to wife
The Mirror, 10 Nov 2022

A postcard where a passenger on the doomed Titanic tells his wife ‘this is the last thing you will hear from me’ is to go under the hammer. The message was written by second class passenger Jacob Milling from his hotel room in Southampton and was sent the day before he boarded the ill-fated liner. Mr. Milling, an engineer who was travelling to America to study railway machinery for two months, described to wife Augusta how he could see the world’s biggest passenger ship from his window. He wrote: “Dear Augusta! This is the last thing you will hear from me from this side of the Atlantic.

The auction is being held by Henry Aldridge & Sons on 19 Nov 2022. The offering price is £7,000.
