Frederick Fleet
Frederick Fleet (1887–1965) was a British sailor, crewman and survivor of the sinking of the Titanic after the ship struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic at 11:40 pm on 14 April 1912. As one of two lookouts on duty aboard the Titanic at the time of the collision, it was Fleet who first sighted the iceberg, ringing the bridge to proclaim: "Iceberg, right ahead!"Photograph credit: unknown
