        Even if we assume he knew that those were distress rockets from a sinking ship, he would have risked the safety of his own ship had he moved. "Lord's own words describe a dangerous situation in which his ship has been stopped by loose ice." He could not have moved no matter what happened. That is why "Lord did not even choose to get out of bed to make even the most minor personal inquiry" I hope I did not step on your toes; I am open to accepting other theories.

        It is awfully sad..But i keep on thinking that this tragegy could have been avoided if the Captain stopped the engine before the night. Without visibility ,and with no moon it was dangerous to sail..and the boat sailed very fast if my memories are good..sad.

        I was the prize winner in 1957 and still have many of the books bought with the four pounds and five shillings PRIZE money. I was approaching 14 at that time.
