About Pierre Marie Georges Maréchal

Mr Pierre Maréchal, the son of a vice-admiral of the French navy, was an aviator. He came from Paris and boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a first class passenger (cabin C-47).


On the evening of April 14th Maréchal was playing cards in the Café Parisien, with Afred Fernand Omont, Paul Chevré and Lucien P. Smith when the collision took place:


Chevré, Maréchal and Omont were all rescued in lifeboat 7, "When three-quarters of a mile away we stopped, the spectacle before our eyes was in its way magnificent. In a very calm sea, beneath a sky moonless but sown with millions of stars, the enormous Titanic lay on the water, illuminated from the water line to the boat deck. The bow was slowly sinking into the black water."


The men later described their rescue in an article that appeared in Le Matin and The Times (see Paul Chevre)
