Violet Jessop was an early 20th century British ship’s stewardess and nurse, who remarkably survived two tragic events. What were they?

Answer: She survived not only the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912, but also the HMHS Britannic four years later. To further emphasise her survival skills on the high seas, she also escaped unharmed from an incident in 1911 when the RMS Olympic collided with the naval cruiser HMS Hawke.
