Une miraculée pas ordinaireThème IV
Message de violet91 posté le 24-01-2010 à 19:30:32 (S | E | F)

Bonjour,les amis ..voilà ,enfin, ce qui va ramener un sourire à vos lèvres.

Quand nous quittons "Iris" pour dévoiler Violet..


A pretty Irish lassie.



------------------------- Une miraculée pas ordinaire. Thème 4.--------------------------------------------------



---Violet Constance JESSOP avait donc échappé quatre fois à une mort certaine. Le naufrage du Titanic et les sauvetages miraculeux qui s'ensuivirent avaient confirmé sa bravoure et ses qualités humaines..

Bien que dégoûtée de toute croisière ,travail oblige. Violet avait ,par ailleurs ,les pieds sur terre.. Elle rejoignit brièvement la capitale ,ce Londres déjà trépidant où elle revit, un jour, cette amie juive qui lui avait glissé dans la main une prière en hébreu juste avant son "prestigieux " embarquement du 12 Avril 1912. Elle se l'était fait traduire à bord : protection assurée contre tout danger en mer !

Elle reprit du service sur "l'Olympic" puis l'année 1914 arriva : le 4 Août, la première guerre mondiale éclatait. Violet,concernée par la Triple-Entente, s'engagea comme élève-infirmière dans le V.A.D * du Britannic ,autre navire- jumeau du Titanic qui, lui, était un hôpital flottant. La "mère" des infirmières britanniques Miss Nightingale* prénommée Florence, comme sa ville natale, l'aurait-elle influencée dans sa démarche militante et altruiste ?

Ce fut la sixième et dernière traversée du Britannic .Le 21 Novembre 1916 , il sombra dans la mer Egée , entre la Grèce et la Turquie. Sans doute heurta-t-il une mine...ou souffrit-il d'une explosion "interne" . Secret d'Etat? Le mystère reste entier. Cette fois-ci, les canots de sauvetage ne manquaient pas et l'eau était tiède. Hélas, nombre d'entre eux chavirèrent à cause des violents remous dus aux hélices. Violet,aspirée, coula ,s'assomma à moitié contre la quille.. et eut le temps de penser à sa mort indubitable..quand, sa main frôla un gilet de sauvetage ! Elle s'y cramponna ce qui lui valut le salut.

N'était-elle donc pas une miraculée exceptionnelle ? Persévérante, elle continua de travailler à bord en tant qu'hôtesse jusqu'au 21 décembre 1950. Elle avait soixante-trois ans ,fait deux fois le tour du monde, vécu en mer tout ce que l'on sait....sans jamais apprendre à nager !!

Sa retraite était bien méritée, chacun dira! Elle s'installa ,seule, dans une belle chaumière dans l'un des comtés les plus charmants et verdoyants d'Angleterre , le Suffolk, bordé par la mer du Nord. En 1958, journaliste et cinéaste lui rendirent hommage dans " Une nuit mémorable". A part un appel téléphonique des plus insolites en 1970 , elle vécut vingt et un ans paisibles jusqu'en 1971 . Elle repose désormais à Hartest.

. Violet as a nurse.

* V.A.D : Voluntary Aid Detachment.

* Florence Nightingale (comme "Rossignol ") - la dame à la lampe"- 1820.1910.

Ah Le thème IV! Super! Bon et bien j'ouvre le bal! Et dansons maintenant...

"So Violet Constance JESSOP had defied certain death on four occasions. The sinking of the Titanic and the subsequent miraculous rescuing of the survivors had confirmed her bravery and human qualities.
No matter how much sick of cruising she was, she had to get back to work.

Furthermore Violet had her feet firmly on the ground.
She went briefly back to the capital, this even then hectic town of London where, one day, she saw again this Jewish female friend who had slipped a prayer in Hebrew into her hand just before she boarded the «magnificent» boat on April 12th, 1912. She had it translated once aboard: protection was ensured from all sea hazards!

She was back to work on the Olympic and then 1914 began: On the 4th of August, World War I broke out.
Violet, involved in the Triple Alliance, joined, as a student nurse, the Volontary Aid Detachment of the Britannic, another sister ship of the Titanic, which was a floating hospital. Did the British head-nurse, Miss Nightingale
nicknamed Florence- like her native town-, play a role in her militant and altruist step?

It was the sixth and last crossing of the Britannic. On November 21st, 1916, she foundered in the Aegean Sea, between Greece and Turkey. She would have collided with a mine... or suffered an inside blast. State secret? Who knows! The mystery remains entire.

For once there was no lack of lifeboats and the waters were tepid. Alas! Many of the boats capsized owing to the forceful eddies produced by the propellers. Violet, now dragged down, sank, almost knocked senseless against the keel and had enough time to consider her indubitable death... when her hand suddenly grazed a life-preserver! By clinging to it she found her salute.

Was she not, indeed, an exceptional miraculous survivor ? Persevering, she kept on working aboard, as a ship stewardess until December 21st, 1950. She was sixty-three, had twice sailed around the world, gone through all things we know when she was on seas...and never learned to swim.

Her retirement was well deserved, as everyone will admit it! She settled on her own in a lovely cottage in Suffolk, one of the greenest and most charming county of England on the seashore of the North Sea. In 1958, journalists and film-makers paid homage to Violet in the film « A night to remember ». Excepted a rather strange phone-call in 1970, she lived twenty-one peaceful years until 1971. She now rests in Hartest."

Merci Violet(s)!

Le Britannic
En 1975, Jacques-Yves Cousteau découvre l'épave du Britannic, navire-jumeau du Titanic, par 120 mètres de fond. C'est en 1976 qu'il pénètre pour la première fois avec des plongeurs à l'intérieur de l'épave. Certains éléments sont repêchés.

Pas de danger à s'y aventurer!....

Hello Violet, here is mine, at last!!

So, Violet Constance JESSOP escaped four times to a certain death. The Titanic wreck and the miraculous rescues which followed had confirmed her courage and human qualities.

Although she had been embittered of all types of cruises, it was necessary to work. In addition Violet was realistic……She returned for a short time to the Capital, This feverish town of London where she saw again, one day, this jewish woman friend who had slipped to her hand a prayer in Hebrew just before her “prestigious” boarding of April 12th 1912. She had it translated by someone on board the ship: Secured protection against every sea danger !

She went back to work on the « Olympic »ship, then 1914 year came: On 4th August, the World War I broke out. Violet, was concerned by the Triple-Entente, enlisted as student nurse in the Voluntary Aid Detachment of the Britannic, the Titanic’s sister ship, who was a floating hospital ship. Did Miss Nightingale, named Florence like her native town, influence Violet in her altruistic and militant approach ?

It was the sixth and last crossing of the Britannic. On 21st November 1916, she sank in Aegean sea, between Greece and Turkey. She probably collided with a mine…..or was she affected by an “inside” blast, State Secret ? The mystery remains unsolved. This time, the lifeboats were sufficient and the water was warm. Alas, an important number capsized because of the violent eddies caused by the propellers. Violet, was sucked, sunk, half-struck against the keel…has had the time to think to her undoubted death….but, suddenly her hand brushed a lifejacket ! she held it on tightly and found the salvation.

Indeed, Was not she an exceptional miraculous survivor? with determination she continued to work on board as ship stewardess until December 21st, 1950. She was sixty-three, she sailed round the world twice, she experienced on sea all what we know……..without having learnt to swim!!

Here retirement was well-deserved as everyone will say ! She moved, alone, into a lovely cottage located in one of the most charming and verdant counties of England, The Suffolk, on North Sea. In 1958, journalists and filmmaker paid homage to Her with “ A night to remember”. Excepted one of the most strange phone call she got on 1970, she lived twenty-one peaceful years until 1971. She rests at Hartest from that time.

Thank you a lot.

Bonjour Violet,
Bonjour à tous,

Merci pour cette nouvelle partie de ce thème ...

En voici le début ...

So Violet Constance JESSOP got four times away from an undeniable dead. The Titanis's sinking and the following miraculous rescues confirmed her courage and her humanism.

Although she was fed up of any cruise, she had to work. Furthermore Violet was down-to-earth. She went back to the capital city, this London already frenetic where she saw briefly this Jewish friend again, this friend which slipped her a prayer in Hebrew just before her "pretigious" boarding in April 1912 the 12th. She asked for its translation at board : security insured against all sea hazard.

She was working again on "the Olympic" as the 1914 year came : August the 4th the first world war broke out. Violet, affected by the Triple Entente, joined the V.A.D as trainee nurse on the Britannic, another ship -twin of the Titanic- but a floating hospital. Had the Mother Superior of the britain nurses Miss Nightingale, which first name was Florence, like the name of her hometown, determined her altruist commitment ?

La suite plus tard ...

Bonjour Violet,

Therefore, Violet Constance Jessop had escaped four times a certain death. The sinking of the Titanic and the miraculous rescues that went with it, had confirmed her bravery and human qualities
Though being put her off by any cruising, but in need of work, Violet had her feet firmly on the ground.. She briefly went back to the capital, this already hectic London town where, one day, she met again this Jewish friend who had slipped a prayer in Hebrew in her hand just before her ‘prestigious’ boarding on April 12th 1912. She had it translated on board : a sure protection against any danger at sea
She boarded the « Olympic », and then came year 1914 : on August 4th, t World War I broke out. Violet, affected by the Triple Alliance, enlisted as a student nurse in the VAD of the ‘Britannic’, another twin ship of the ‘Titanic’, which had become a floating hospital. Could Miss Nightingale (named Florence from her native town) and the ’mother’ of all the British nurses, have acted upon her militant and altruistic step ?
That was the sixth and last crossing of the ‘Britannic’. On November 21st 1916, she sank in the Aegean Sea between Turkey and Greece. She might have hit a mine…or did she suffer an internal burst.. A state secret ? The mystery remains unresolved. This time, there was no shortage of lifeboats and the water was warm. Alas ! Lots of them overturned because of the violent swirls made by the propellers. Violet, sucked under the water, struck her head against the ship’s keel and got time enough to imagine she was heading for certain death.. When, suddenly, her hand brushed past a life jacket ! She clutched at it and that saved her.
Wasn’t she an exceptional miraculous survivor ? Obstinate, she went on working on board as stewardess until December 21st 1950. She was 63, and had twice sailed around the world.
She deserved her retirement, anyone can tell ! She settled down, alone, into a nice thatched cottage in Suffolk, one of the most charming county in England, along the shore of the North Sea. In 1958, journalists and film-makers pay tribute to her in ‘A memorable night’. Apart from a most unusual phone call in 1970, she spent 21 peaceful years until 1971.
From then on, she lies in Hartest.

Merci, Violet,pour cette belle et émouvante histoire

Violet Constance JESSOP had escaped, four times, to an assured death. The wreck of the Titanic and the miraculous rescues that followed had confirmed her bravery and human qualities.

Though she was fed up of cruises, she had to work. Morever, Violet had her feet firmly planted on the ground. She briefly got back to the Capital, this London very busy, where, a day, she saw again this Jewish friend who had slipped in her hand a praier in Hebrew, just before her "prestigious" embarkation on April 12th 1912. She asked for transleting it on board: Protection against all sea dangers.

She took up again her duties on the "Olympic" while 1914 began: on the August 4th the First World War broke out. Violet, affected by the Triple Alliance joined as nurse-student the V.A.D ( Volontary Aid Detachement) of the "Britanic", another ship-sister of the Titanic, which was a floating hospital. Would have the "Mother" of the british nurses, miss Nightgale, named Florence like her native town, influenced her in her militant and altruistic engagement?

It was the sixth and last crossing of the "Britannic". On the November 21st 1916, she got down in the Aegean sea, between Greace and Turkey. No doubt, she collided with a mine or she suffered of an internal blast.- State Secret - That will always be a closed book. This once, there was no lack of lifeboats and the water was tepid; Unfortunately, a lot of them overturned owing to the strong swirls caused by the propellers. Violet was drew up and sent to the bottom and knocked herself against the keel. She had time to anticipate her indubitable death, when, her hand brushed against a life-jacket, she gripped to it and so found her salute.

Wasn't she a miraculous survivor? She went on working on board as a stewardess until december 21st 1950. She was sixty- three years old, twice she went round the world an lived everything we know.... without learning how to swim!!

Everybody will say how well-desserved her retirement was.She settled, lonely, in a nice cottage in one of the most pleasant and green counties: Suffolk, lined by North-Sea. On 1958, journalist and film-maker paid homage to her in a "Night to Remember". Except a rater strange call-phone on 1970, she lived twenty-one quiet years until 1971. Now she rests to Hartest.

---Violet Constance Jessop had thus escaped four times a certain death. The sinking of the Titanic and the miraculous rescues that followed had confirmed her bravery and her human qualities.

Although turned off to all sea travel ,work obliges. Violet had ,besides ,her feet on the ground.. She briefly went back to the capital , this already-trepidating London where she saw again, one day, that Jewish (female) friend who had slid into her hand a prayer in Hebrew just before her "prestigious" embarkment of April 12, 1912. She had it translated for her on board: assured protection against all danger at sea!

She resumed service on "the Olympic" then the year 1914 arrived; the 4th of August, World War I broke out. Violet, concerned by the Triple Entente, engaged herself as a student-nurse in the V.A.D. of the Britannic ,another sister ship of the Titanic that itself was a floating hospital. Would the "mother" of the British nurses Miss Nightingale, first name Florence, like her city of birth, have influenced it by her militant and altruistic approach?

It was the Britannic's sixth and last voyage .On November 21, 1916 , it went down in the Aegean Sea , between Greece and Turkey. Surely it hit a mine...or suffered an "internal" explosion. State secret? The mystery remains uncracked. This time, there was no lack of lifeboats and the water was warm. Alas, a number of them capsized because of the violent whirlpools due to the propellers. Violet,out of breath, went under , knocked herself half-senseless against the keel.. and had the time to think about her indubitable death..when, her hand brushed against a lifejacket! She held on tight to what to her was worth salvation.

Wasn't she thus an exceptional miracle? Perseverent, she continued to work on board as a hostess until December 21, 1950. She was sixty-three years old ,went around the world twice, lived at sea as much as anyone knows how to....without ever learning to swim!!

Her retirement was well-deserved, everyone will say! She settled ,alone, into a beautiful thatched cottage in one of the most charming and greenest counties in England , Suffolk, along the North Sea. In 1958, journalist and movie producer paid homage to her in " A night to remember". Apart from one of the most unusual telephone calls in 1970 , she lived twenty-one peaceful years until 1971 .

Bonjour violet.

A miraculous survivor (IV)

So, Violet Constance Jessop narrowly escaped death four times. The sinking of the Titanic, and the miraculous rescues of the shipwreck victims which followed, had proved her bravery and human qualities.
Although she was tired of cruising, she had to work.Otherwise, Violet had her feet firmly on the ground… She paid a flying visit to the capital, the London, which was then filled with hurrying people, where, one day, she saw that Jewish friend again, the one who slipped a Hebraic prayer into her hand just before her prestigious embarkment on 12 April 1912.
On board, she had it translated : « Safety guaranteed against any danger at sea ! »

She returned to service on the Olympic. Then the year 1914 came. On August 4 England declared war on Germany. Violet, felt personally involved in the « triple-Entente»,and enrolled as a pupil nurse in the VAD of the Britannic , another twin-ship of the Titanic, which was a hospital ship.

Would Miss Nightingale , the mother of nurses, called Florence after her native town, have had an influence on her militant and altruistic commitment ?

That was the sixth and last crossing of the Britannic. On November 12 1916 he sank to the bottom of Aegean between Greece and Turkey. Perhaps he struck a mine or there was an explosion in board “state secret” . The mystery remains unresolved.
This time, the water was cool and there were enough life boats. Alas, lots of them capsized because of the violent wash. She was inexorably sucked under the water and as she struggled upward her head hit the keel of a wrecked boat and she began to sink again.
Half knocked-down she thought her luck had finally run out and she had time to envisage her ineluctable death… When, suddenly, her hand brushed against a life jacket. She firmly held on to it, which saved her life.

Wasn’t she an outstanding survivor ? She steadily carried on working on board as a stewardess until December 21 1950. She was then sixty-three. She had been round the world twice, and had experienced all that we know at sea … without ever learning to swim.

Her retirement, well deserved, was unanimously greeted. She settled ,alone, in a thatched cottage in one of the greenest and most charming counties of England, Suffolk, bounded at East by the German Ocean.
In 1958, filmmakers and journalists paid homage to Violet in « A night to remember ». Excepted one of the most puzzling telephone call in 1970, she peacefully lived here until 1971. Her final resting-place is in the Hartest churchyard.

Je prends quelques temps pour me replonger dans le gouffre du thème .J'avoue ne pas avoir pris trop de temps pour réfléchir et te demande, chère Violet ,de ne pas m'en vouloir pour mon presque mot à mot ...mais je n'ai pas utilisé le traducteur ….......ni appelé mon amie anglaise à l'aide

Violet Constance Jessop had fortunetly escaped four times to a certain death. The sinking of the Titanic and the miraculous rescues which followed confirmed her bravery and her human qualities
Although she was disguted to do any cruize , she must go back to work . Violet had , moreover , her feet on the ground …. She went to the capital , this London so hectic , where , one day she met again this Jewish friend who had slipped in her hands a prayer in Hebrew just before her « prestigious »  boarding on April 1912. She asked for a translation aboard «  Protection assured
from all the possible dangers on the sea »

She was back to work on « the Olympic » and then 1914 arrived :On the 4th of August , the first World War broke out . Violet , concerned about the « Triple Alliance »,joined as a nurse student the V.A.D on the « Britannic » an other sister ship of the titanic , which was a boat hospital .Could MissNightingale , the head of the british nurses , nicknamed Florence , like her native town , influence her , in a militante and altruist approach ?

It was the sixth and the last crossing of the Britannic . On November 21sh 1916, she sank in the Aegean Sea , between Greece and turkey . Perhaps the Boat collided with a mine ….or was it an inside blast ? .State Secret ? Nobody knows the answer , the mystery stay. For once , all the lifeboats could be used , and the water was mild . Alas ! Many lifeboats capsided in the powerful backwashes produced by the propellers .Violet , dragged down , sank almost knocked against the keel and had enough time to think that the death was indubitable...., when her hand grazed a life preserver ! She found her salute with it as she held it on tightly.

Wasn't she an exeptional miraculous survivor ? Persevering , she continued to work aboard as a ship stewardess until December 21th 1980 She was sixty three , she had twice sailed around the world ,she knew all what we know ….. but she never learned to swim

Good afternoon Violet!

I have just come back from a very cold and windy, (yet sunny) walk with the dog and have decided to "attack" your latest subject. "Into the brink ..........."

And it was thus Violet Constance Jessop defied certain death four times. The sinking of "The SS Titanic" and the subsequent miraculous rescue of her survivors confirmed her bravery and human qualities.

Even though this had put her off cruiseboats, work came first. Besides, Violet was a sensible woman. She returned to the capital for a short visit, this vibrant town of London where she again bumped into the Jewish woman who had pressed a piece of paper into her hand just prior to her "prestigious" boarding on the 12th April 1912. She had had it translated on board: "guaranteed to protect the bearer against all dangers at sea."

Employed on the "The SS Olympic" until the 4th August 1914 when the First World War broke out, Violet, sympathetic to the Triple Alliance cause, signed up as a student nurse with the V.A.D. on "The SS Britannic" the sister ship of "The SS Titanic" which had been turned into a floating hospital. Was that unselfish militant and British matron, Miss Nightingale - nicknamed Florence (after her home town) such an influence on Violet?

On the 21st November 1916 during the sixth and final crossing, "The SS Britannic" foundered in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey. Probably hit a mine or at most an explosion in the engine room. State secret? Who knows! The mystery remains intact. This time however, there was no lack of lifeboats and the water was tepid. Alas, many of the lifeboats capsized due to whirlpools created by the propellers. Violet was sucked downwards and almost knocked senseless against the keel and had just enough time to think about her imminent death... when suddenly her hand felt a lifejacket and, clinging to it, she once more met salvation!

What an exceptional miracle she was! Unfaltering, she continued to work the liners as a ship's stewardess until December 21st, 1950. She was sixty-three, had sailed around the world twice, been through God only knows when she was at sea ... and had never learned to swim!!

Her retirement was well-deserved as everyone will agree. She settled in Suffolk, one of the most charming and greenest counties in England, in a lovely cottage on the shores of the North Sea. In 1958 journalists and film-makers paid homage to Violet in the film "A Night to Remember". Apart from a rather strange phone-call in 1970, she lived twenty-one quiet years until her death in 1971. She was laid to rest in Hartest.

J'espère que je ne suis pas trop en retard, Violet. J'ai trouvé, par contre, cette traduction très dure... out of practice perhaps?!! Merci pour ton superbe travail. J'ai hâte maintenant de voir le prochain!!

Intrepid

Bonjour Violet,
Bonjour à tous,


Je ne poste ce soir qu'une partie du thème, mais je te remercie de tout
ce voyage dans le passé, vers un voyage naufrage .


4 Une miraculée peu ordinaire


So, Violet Constance JESSOP had escaped from a sure death four times .The sinking of the Titanic, the miraculous rescues which followed had confirmed her bravery, her human qualities .

Though she was sick of any cruise, she had to work . Moreover, Violet had her feet on the ground .In a short time, she rejoined the capital, this already hectic London where, again, she saw a Jewish female friend who had slipped a Hebrew prayer in her hand, just before her “prestigious” boarding on April 12nd 1912 . She had it being translated on board : a certain protection from any danger at sea !

She joined up again on the Olympic then year 1914 came: on August 4 th, the first World War broke out .
Violet, whom the Triple Alliance concerned of, took on herself as a student nurse in V.A.D. of the Britannic, another twin boat of the Titanic, being itself a floating hospital .
Would the “Mother” of the British nurses, Miss Nightingale, called Florence, like her native town, have influenced her as for her militant, altruistic step ?

That was the sixth and the last crossing of the Britannic . The twenty first of November 1916, she sank into the Aegean Sea, between Greece and Turkey .
A demain la suite, je l'espère .



Voici la suite annoncée hier :



She probably hit a mine …or suffered from an “internal” explosion . A state secret ? The mystery still remains unresolved . This time, there was not a lack of lifeboats, the water was warm .Alas!
A lot of them capsized due to the violent swirls caused by the propellers .Violet was sucked, brought down , half knocked out against the keel, then had time to think of her certain death…
when her hand brushed close to a life jacket . She hanged on it, which spared her life .

She was an exceptional, a miraculous female survivor, wasn’t she ? Persevering, she kept on working on board as an hostess until the twenty first of December 1950 . She was sixty- three years old, she had twice gone round the world and she had lived all what we know, on sea …
without ever learning how to swim !

She had really deserved her retiring, every body will say ! She settled alone, in a beautiful cottage, (located ) in one of the most charming, the most green earldom counties of England, the Suffolk,
lined with the North Sea . In 1958, some journalists and film-makers paid homage to her in
“An unforgettable night” . Except a very unusual phone call in 1970, she lived quiet for twenty-one years until 1971 . She is lying at Hortest from now on .

Merci à Violet pour ce passionnant voyage et à ceux qui l'ont comme elle agrémenté de leurs commentaires et de leurs apports divers .

Dear Violet,

Je ne me démoralise pas pour autant quoique...et, eu égard à votre travail, votre investissement et votre know how, je vous adresse le thème IV :

Such a miraculous survivor...

...So Violet Constance Jessop had escaped four times a certain death. The shipwreck of "the Titanic" and
the miraculous savings which resulted had confirmed her bravery and her human qualities.

Although disgusted of all cruising, under obligation by work, Violet had by another way down-to-earth. She rejoined briefly the city, that London already vibrating where she saw again one day, that jewish friend who had slipped into her hand a prayer in Hebreu just before her "marvellous" embarking on April 12 th in 1912. She had requested the translation on board : confident patronage against all sea risk !

She got to work again on "the Olympic" then the 1914 year arrived : on August 4th the First World War broke out. Violet, concerned by "the Triple Entente" enlisted as student medical orderly in the V.A.D. (Voluntary Aid Detachment) of "the Britannic" other twin ship of "the Titanic" who, her, was a floating hospital ship. The "mother" of the ambulance women, Miss Nightingale, named Florence would she influenced in her militanting and altruistic representation ?

That was the sixth and latest crossing of "the Britannic" on November 21st in1916, she sank in the Aegean Sea between the Greece and the Turkey. Probably did she knock against a mine...or did she damage by an "inner" bursting..."secret d'Etat" ? The mystery remained full.

On this time, the lifeboats didn't lack and the water was tepid. Alas ! a number of people overturned because of the violent washes of the screws. Violet, drawn up, sank half brained herself against the keel...and had plenty of time to think about her undoubted death...when her hand touched lightly a lifebelt ! She held on to this, that valued her the savety !

Wasn't she an uncommun miraculous ? Persevering she continued the cruising on board as hostess until December 21st in 1950. She was 63 years (old), went round the world twice, lived on the sea all that we know...without knowing how to swim !!

Eveverybody will speak that her retirement was well deserved ! She instaled alone in a beautiful thatched cottage in one of the most delightful and green countries of the Suffolk, lined by the North Sea. In 1958, reporter and film producer will pay homage to her in "A noteworthy night". Apart one phone call among the most unwonted in 1970, she lived during twenty and one years quietly until 1971. She lies hereafter at Hartest.

Many thanks for that crossing so thrilling on sea than on earth...

Here she comes !!!

Bonsoir,chers amis . Merci d'être venus encore si nombreux et demeurés si discrets en attendant ma disponibilité. Désolée . Voici ma propre proposition.




-------------------------- Such a miraculous survivor. Thème 4 (the end)----------------------------------

--Thus on four occasions, Violet Constance JESSOP had narrowly escaped certain death . The sinking of Titanic and the miraculous rescues of shipwrecked people which followed had proved her bravery and human qualities.

Although she was really put off by any cruising, duty calls and earning a living too. Violet was,besides, that kind of girl with her feet planted firmly on the ground. She went back to the capital for a while , this already hectic London where,one day, she saw that Jewish female friend again who had slipped into her hand a prayer written in Hebrew just before her "prestigious" embarkment on April 12th 1912. She had it translated on board for her : " Guaranteed protection against all dangers at sea "!

She got back to work on (the) Olympic and then came year 1914. The First World War broke out. Violet (as a British citizen)involved in the Triple Entente joined the V.A D as a student nurse on the Britannic , Titanic's other sister-ship, now converted to a hospital ship . Might the "mother" of British nurses, Miss Nightingale ,first named Florence after her native town, have had an influence in Violet's militant and altruistic commitment ?


It was the sixth and final run of the Britannic . On November 21st 1916 , she sank crossing the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey. Apparently , she hit a mine or suffered from an inner blast. A State Secret ? The mystery remains entire. This time, the lifeboats were wisely sufficient and the water was tepid. Alas , many of them were overturned by the tremendous whirlpools due to the propellers . Violet was sucked down : she sank and knocked herself semiconscious on the keel . She certainly had enough time to see her undoubted death coming , when , all of a sudden , she could feel her hand brush against a life-jacket. She desperately clung to it which eventually saved her life.


..Wasn't she an exceptional survivor indeed ? Strong-willed , she carried on * working on board as a stewardess until December 21st 1950. She was sixty-three then, had sailed twice around the world and gone through all we know at sea...without ever learning (how) to swim.


Eveyone will agree to say how well deserved her retirement was ! She settled on her own in a beautiful thatched cottage in one of the most charming and greenest counties of England,Suffolk, lined by the North Sea .

In 1958, some journalist* and a filmmaker paid tribute to her in " A night to remember ". Apart from one most puzzling phone call in 1970, she peacefully lived there* for twenty -one years till 1971.

From now on, " in her grave she lies" in Hartest's churchyard .

Ne m'objectez pas pas "a soul" ..c'est fait!

4 ) "The "ou pas devant TITANIC : les textes diffèrent , mais sachant qu'on le personnifie, le déifie ,le mythifie ..0 article à mon sens. Sinon RMS (Royal Majesty Ship: Titanic; Olympic...or HMHS : Her Majesty Hospital Ship : Britannic.
