They played until the end

In the afterglow of FA Cup sporting brilliance, there is little time for analysis of Tottenham’s performance. The musicians of the RMS Titanic all perished when the ship sank in 1912. They played music, intending to calm the passengers, for as long as they possibly could, and all went down with the ship. All were recognised for their heroism.

After the Titanic hit an iceberg and began to sink, Hartley and his fellow band members started playing music to help keep the passengers calm as the crew loaded the lifeboats. Many of the survivors said that Hartley and the band continued to play until the very end. One second class passenger said:

Many brave things were done that night, but none were more brave than those done by men playing minute after minute as the ship settled quietly lower and lower in the sea. The music they played served alike as their own immortal requiem and their right to be recalled on the scrolls of undying fame.

The Titanic's engineers died out of sight, fighting to keep the ship's lights, pumps, and communications alive until the very end, enabling the crew to help more than 700 passengers into the boats.
