Menu from ill-fated liner sells for £100k

A menu for the first meal ever served on the Titanic has sold for £100,000 at auction.

The lunch - including sweetbreads, spring lamb and pastries - was served during the liner's sea trials on April 2 in 1912.

Second Officer Charles Lightoller, the highest ranking surviving officer from the Titanic, had given the menu to his wife as a souvenir before he left from Southampton.

Among the other items that went under the hammer at Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes, Wiltshire, was a key to the doomed vessel's chart room that sold for £78,000.
