Having seen these things fired, I have shown you what they looked like and what they should look like. If you cannot understand then you do not want to understand. Here's one for you... have you ever heard of an illumination flare? Do you know who uses them? Can you think of a reason why one might be used.? They were not used that night.So, Stone saw white rockets. Of course he did. He said so. White rockets, fired at short intervals, at night, in the middle of the north Atlantic, while surrounded by ice. And he claims to have no idea what they could have meant? It never occurred to him that there could be another ship nearby in trouble? He's either a liar or a moron, possibly both. Either way, his testimony is useless for either defending or condemning Captain Lord.
