Millvina Dean was forced to sell a 100-year-old suitcase filled with clothes which was given to her family by the people of New York when they arrived in America after being rescued.
The 96-year-old also auctioned rare prints of the fated cruise liner which have been signed by the artists along with compensation letters sent to her mother by the Titanic Relief Fund.
The suitcase today fetched £10,800, the prints £9,250 and the letters sold for £11,100. They went under the hammer at Henry Aldridge and Son auctioneers in Devizes, Wiltshire.
In total they made £31,150 - more than ten times the amount Miss Dean had said she hoped to raise
Not a Bad return on investment after all these years.
