Abstract:

On 14th April 1912 the Titanic struck an iceberg. As the order to abandon ship was given, the orchestra took their instruments on deck. They were still playing when the ship went down. The violinist, 21-year-old Jock Hume, knew that his fiancee, Mary, was expecting their child. One hundred years later, Christopher Ward reveals the impact of Jock's death, painting a vivid portrait of an age in which class determined the way we lived and died. And the Band Played On is also an account of how the author's quest to learn more about his grandfather revealed the shocking truth about a family he thought he knew.
