Titanic - J. Dawson, from Dublin

Titanic passenger J. Dawson, from Dublin, noted as victim #227 and identified from papers on his body

Body #227 - recovered at sea after Titanic sank - was identified by the papers found on him.  In life, he was J. Dawson, from Dublin.

Senan Molony uncovered both this picture and the history of Joseph Dawson, a 23-year-old trimmer (coal shoveler) who worked aboard Titanic on her maiden voyage.  When this photo was taken, in 1911, Dawson was wearing the uniform of the Royal Army Medical Corps.
