A plaque has been installed at a home in Scone where a wireless operator from the Titanic once lived.
Harold Bride stayed in the village for 10 years after the disaster.
Scone and District Historical Society (SDHS) wanted to recognise that fact and its efforts bore fruit last week when a blue plaque was placed at Stormont House.

The property also happens to be owned by Scone stalwart George Stewart.
SDHS chair Mike Moir was delighted to see the plaque go up at a ceremony on Friday.
He said: “The Titanic is still of great interest so it seemed like a good idea.

“It’s like the blue plaques you see in London and other big cities and it’s about something maybe a lot of people do not know about.
“The ceremony went well. Obviously we were restricted with the regulations so there was only a few members of the historical society, George Stewart and Councillor Lewis Simpson.”
Harold Bride may have been one of the first men to use the now universally known ‘SOS’ distress signal as he sought help for the stricken ship’s terrified passengers.

He was born in London on January 11, 1890 and trained as a Marconi wireless operator after he left school and went to sea.
On April 9, 1912, he joined RMS Titanic as one of two wireless operators in Belfast when the ship was on its maiden voyage from Southampton bound for New York.
Four days later the ship struck an iceberg. Bride and his fellow operator John Phillips were ordered to send out the CQD (Come Quickly Danger) call for assistance which, at that time, was the usual international call for help.

After five minutes flashing CQD signals, Bride suggested sending out the brand new SOS call sign that had superseded CQD.
Bride ran back and forth between the Marconi room and the captain, conveying the signal messages as they arrived from the nearest ships.
He and Phillips remained at their posts for approximately 15 minutes after the captain released them from their duties, before the rising water in their cabin forced them to leave their posts and scramble up on deck.

It was the last time Bride saw Phillips alive. Bride was washed overboard by a large wave and swam away from the sinking ship.
He was pulled on board one of the collapsible boats before being picked up by the rescue ship Carpathia.
Bride was a principal witness at both the New York and London inquiries into the sinking of the Titanic and was given a hero’s welcome on his return home.
But he was uncomfortable with his fame and moved to Scotland in 1922.
Harold Bride died in 1956 aged 66.
