Sidney Edward Daniels on board the RMS Olympic, 1911
Sidney Edward Daniels (19 November 1893 – 25 May 1983), known as Sid Daniels, was a British merchant seaman and the last surviving member of the crew of the RMS Titanic. Daniels was only 18 when the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on 15 April 1912, and survived by clinging onto an upturned collapsible boat which was rescued by the Carpathia hours later. He also served in World War I for the Royal Army Service Corps and World War II for the Merchant Navy.
