Titanic violin discovered
9:43am Monday 28th March 2011 in News
The missing violin played by the Titanic’s band leader as the ship slowly sank may have been found 99 years on.
Wallace Hartley and his seven band members became part of the Titanic’s history when they continued to play while going down with the ship on April 14, 1912.
But now the violin has been found and is undergoing tests at a specialist auction house to test its authenticity.
Experts are so sure the violin is the real deal they are planning to take it on a world tour to mark the 100th anniversary of the liner’s sinking.
