    We have learned that on board the Titanic (as perhaps with other ships of the period), many passengers, probably mostly American businessmen in First Class, sent out private telegrams from Saturday night onwards. I am interested in knowing what the regulations and financial implications (to the...

    How did the engine room start to flood before that compartment was submerged?

    For the last 20 minutes of the tragic disaster, and about the Morse code messages sent to nearby ships on April 15th 1912.

    John George "Jack" Phillips Ancestry

    I am doing some 'causal' research on Phillips (and Moody), and was wondering if there are any others out there who are undertaking the same task. I've found Phillips in the census. Does anyone know his parents', specifically George Alfred Phillips, birth date? Any help would be appreciated.

    What did the wireless sound like

    Most movies depict it sounding like beeps I have imagined it sounding like clicks or buzzes. Also in a deleted scene from Titanic the Californian operator said "listen the spark their putting out" How could he hear their spark?

    Did the Wireless Operators Know

    This is a question I have been wondering about for some time, and one for which I have never come up with an answer: Did Titanic's radio operators know there was a mystery ship 10 miles away, and did they try to contact it? Were they aware that the Californian should have been nearby or did...
