Regarding Boat No. 1, with the clock ticking, First Officer Murdoch and Fifth Officer Lowe probably wanted to clear away No. 1 so that later on the crew could get Collapsible C away (which they did) and then Collapsible A away (which they didn't) on the same davits.We had the internet by then so I found out all about the "millionaire"s boat" and the Duff Gordons. I always wondered about 12 on a lifeboat that could hold 40 but I believe the 5 dollars(pounds) paid to the crew on boat 1 was merely a kind gesture by Cosmo Duff Gordon to compensate the men for lost wages, as their pay was stopped by White Star Line the moment the ship went under. They were vilified in the media and it followed all of them negatively for the rest of their lives. We are in the Chicago area, he settled in Gary,Indiana and worked several factory jobs, I dont believe he ever sailed again.
