Harold Sydney Bride (11 January 1890 – 29 April 1956) became the junior wireless officer on board the maiden voyage of the ocean liner RMS Titanic. The Titanic struck an iceberg at 11:40 pm 14 April 1912 and sank two hours and forty minutes later. Working with Jack Phillips, Bride helped inform Titanic's Captain Smith about the ships coming to Titanic's assistance. The next morning, after Titanic sank, Bride was rescued by the RMS Carpathia and despite being injured, helped the Carpathia's wireless operator transmit survivor lists and personal messages from the ship.
