    Role of Fred Fleet on Boat #6 questioned/challenged, "ally" of Hichens?

    First of all, Hi from Argentina, and forgive English language messes and mixing American & British English. I saw both movies A Night To Remember and Titanic (1997), and it seems to be that Fleet indeed supported Hichens' position on refusing to go back and never defended e.g. Margaret Brown...

    Frederick Fleet - 10 Missing Answers?

    Reading Fleet's testimony at the British Inquiry I found the following yellow note. Does this mean that 10 questions are missing from the records e.g. page missing or torn out perhaps intentionally? Questions would usually stray off topic and then come back to the original point. Wonder...

    Questions about Fleet and Lee

    Are there any resources with emphasis on the two men during the night of the 14th? Currently skipping ahead a bit in my research due to writers' block and looking into the ten minutes before the impact. Also, who were intended to relieve them after midnight if the collision never happened?

    Fleet's 'Haze'

    I have read a few accounts with state that Frederick Fleet in the Crow's Nest saw a "haze" in the horizon a minute or so he spotted the actual iceberg and rang the warning bell. Does anyone know if that was a verbatim quote by Fleet or Lee or assumption by a writer based on statements by either...

    Seeking Frederick Fleet Titanic Commutators

    Hi All, I am seeking some back issues that have articles, artifacts, and pictures concerning Frederick Fleet. I know they sell these on the THS website, but they get expensive and plus they are not the original issues. The following issues I know that are out there that I need are Issue 121...

    Fleet Lee and the Kenilworth Castle

    It seems possible that Lookouts Fleet and Lee sailed together on the Kenilworth Castle in 1913 before Lee's death in August of that year. I was looking at some photos of Fleet's discharge book in THS' Titanic Commutator, vol 17, no. 1, May 1993-July 1993. Fleet sailed on the Olympic from...

    Defending Fleet And Lee

    Well my friends, here's my first E-T article for '09. It doesn't add anything new per se to the subject of Frederick Fleet and Reginald Lee's sighting of the iceberg for dyed in the wool students of the disaster, but I hope it does prove instructive for members of the general public who...

    Marital Status Of Lee Fleet Evans and Jewell in April 1912

    I know for a fact George Hogg was married with a wife and two kids in Southampton, and that George Symons was single and, apparently, resided at his parents home while in England (unless I am mistaken). Yet what was the marital status of Frederick Fleet, Reginald Lee, Arthur Evans, and Archie...

    What Was Mr Cameron's Source For Having Fleet And Lee

    In the final script and finished film, James Cameron depicted Fleet and Lee as looking down at passengers (in this instance the romantic leads) kissing on the forward well deck, then joking about something related to it and then discussing something about "smelling ice". Right after that they...

    Bernard Fox - Frederick Fleet

    This may be covered in another thread.: Bernard Fox played the part of Frederick Fleet in ANTR, but I haven't been able to find his name listed in the cast list at the start of the movie. Was he listed under another name or was it that his part just didn't rate a listing ?

    Fred Fleet and his discharge book

    When Lookout Fleet left the Titanic, he had the sense of mind to rescue his discharge book. Why would he do that I wonder? When the collision occurred, he thought it was a narrow shave, and didn't suspect anything serious. He went below and was ordered on deck by a quartermaster (perhaps...
