"Birkenhead Life Boat" (1852). The call of "Women and children first" when a ship sinks is called the Birkenhead Drill. It was named after the actions of the young soldiers on the transport ship "Birkenhead", many of them 74th Highlanders, which foundered off the South African coast in 1852. They stood to attention on their sinking ship to avoid swamping the lifeboats containing the women and children.
