A rusty key a brave steward on the Titanic used to get to stowed away lifejackets has surfaced for the first time 104 years later.<br />
<br />
The key was recovered from the drowned body of Sidney Sedunary who was last seen passing the cork-filled life preservers to third class passengers on a lower deck of the sinking liner.<br />
<br />
The fob was engraved with the words 'Locker 14 'F' Deck' and would have unlocked a cupboard housing the lifejackets.<br />
<br />
It is now coming up for sale at Wiltshire auctioneers Henry Aldridge and Son for an estimated £50,000.
