RMS Titanic collided with the fateful iceberg at 11.40 pm, long after dinner had been served. Following salvage of artefacts from the sunken ship and company records many menus were found giving a clear picture of what had been not only carried but also served on the ship. Of most interest are the menus from the evening of April 14th showing the food served to the doomed passengers. Sadly, no third class menus from that night exist so what they ate is purely specualtion and believed to have probably been a High Tea as discussed on the previous page.
