fourth officer boxhall

  1. Gordon Mooneyhan


    Collusion is a secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy. The four surviving officers (Lightoller, Pittman, Boxhall, and Lowe) had time to get together on Carpathia while returning to New York. Do you think they may have colluded on their testimony for either of the hearings?

    Did the Surviving Officers Remain in Touch With One Another?

    Did any of Charles Lightoller, Herbert Pitman, Joseph Boxhall and Harold Lowe keep in touch in the years following the disaster or not ? Boxhall and Pitman did at least meet once more (and were pictured together) in 1958 at the London premiere of A Night To Remember.

    Did Boxhall Really Have Pleurisy?

    It is alleged that 4th officer Boxhall became seriously ill with a high fever and contracted pleurisy as a result of his time in the lifeboat. However I read that pleurisy causes a sharp pain in the chest which makes it almost impossible for the patient to utter a few words of speech and it...

    Both men approached the bridge when they heard the bell in the crows nest and felt the collision just before they got there. Does anyone know who got there first? I understand Boxhall and quartermaster Olliver both arrived in time to see Murdoch close the watertight doors immediately after the...

    Did Boxhall Witness the Ship Break?

    Boxhall gave an interview in 1962. When he left the ship he said the Captain looked over the side from the bridge and sung out and told him to go around to the starboard side to the gangway doors. He said "When I passed around the boat to try and get to this gangway door on the starboard side...

    Boxhall's Green Flares

    There has been disagreement about the nature of the green signals used by Boxhall to attract the attention of Carpathia. Some say they were hand-held flares others that they were Roman Candles. What were they? During his evidence, Captain Rostron told his questioners that he first saw the...

    Boxhall's Shenanigans

    I would like to raise an interesting topic, if I may. In regards to Boxhall's, shall we say shenanigan's, the few minutes prior to the fateful collision with the iceberg. First, I will quickly disprove a few of the theories that are commonly put out there. First, he was not in the crapper...

    Photo of Boxhall

    Can anyone help me find proper pictures of Boxhall? This one here is the most common one I find. The Crew of Titanic Scroll down a bit and go to Boxhall. But that I don't think even is him.
