Few people knew the White Star Olympic Class Liners like Violet Jessop.
With her mother ill, a 17-year-old Violet applies for a stewardess position on the RMS Olympic. Little does she know, but on obtaining the position she is embarking on a journey that will make her one of maritime history’s most remarkable characters.
Whether blessed by good luck or ill fortune, Violet Jessop was aboard each of the Olympic Class Liners during their three respective mishaps at sea. As both a stewardess and a nurse Violet Jessop was, on three occasions, witness to the kind of chaos and danger that most people never experience even once in a lifetime.
And thanks to the memoirs of the indefatigable Violet, we now have some insight into the life, the lady and the Olympic Class Liners.
