    When did the Marconi wires slung between Titanics Masts Snap?

    Hello, I was wondering at what stage during the Titanics sinking did the four Marconi lines running between the ships masts snap? They obviously must have been broken after the hull snapped in half but could Funnels 1 and 2 rolling off or the bow mast getting fully submerged have severed them...

    Was the aftermost of the two masts on the titanic called in nautical terms the "mainmast" or "aftermast"? Also, was it a thin wire that was strung between the two masts, or a thick cable? And the masts were there in part so a wire aireal could be rigged up for the Marconi shack, correct?
