According to Titanic Triumph and Tragedy (pg 259) Carlisle joined the firm of Axel Welin, but according to Wyn Wade Carlisle became a master builder in the Royal Navy. Have a great Christmas everyone!
I've read somewhere that Carlisle had resigned from H&W because he did not agree with Pirrie's stance about the lifeboats, but when I tried to have this fact confirmed with the British Enquiry (testimony of Carlisle) I found out that nowhere it is specified in the latter. Is someone knows what is the truth concerning this ? And where this fact could be confirmed for sure if it represents the truth ?
There were actually old photos of the Titanic in our old family home ,but they were destroyed when we moved in the sixties ! The Titanic wasn't really famous then !
Hi Martin , my grandfather wrote everything,and there were lots of papers where he'd written about everything from his job in Harland and Wolf to hair restoration! A lot of it was stored in an old coach house hayloft . These were all mixed with photos ,many of ships with the Titanic amongst them . When we moved in the late sixties it was all cleared out .Welcome to ET Lorna Alexander! Great to have such an connection to shipbuilding history!
Not to be rude, what do you mean by "destroyed"? Do you mean they were purposely destroyed (possibly out of respect or shame of the disaster) or was it by accident?
