Blue Star Line say that Phiip Littlejohn has joined the Titanic Advisory Board: he is the grandson of Alexander James Littlejohn, 1st Class Steward 'RMS Titanic'.

Alexander Littlejohn survived the sinking after being ordered to row Lifeboat 13.  After the disaster Alexander returned to work for the White Star Line on RMS Olympic, until the outbreak of WW1, in 1914.

Blue Star Line say that his grandson Philip lectures throughout the UK and abroad including lecturing on the Titanic 100th Anniversary Cruise in 2012. He took part in a BBC TV documentary where he dived to the wreck of the Titanic. He is the author of “Titanic- Waiting for Orders” and regularly visits schools and adult groups to talk about the Titanic.

Philip says he believes that if his grandfather were able to comment on the building of Titanic ll, he would say “it is keeping the dream alive”.

He continued: "RMS Titanic was the 'Ship of Dreams' and if everyone connected with Titanic ll, has respect for those who lost their lives or whose lives were forever changed by the loss of RMS Titanic, then her story will live on for future generations.
