Dinnae worry mate I'm no conspiracy theorist.Check the provided document for further details. In short, most of what was put in the hold was not "high explosives" and regardless of what was put in the hold, it was still intact in 1993 and 2015, so it did not explode.
I know full well that there weren't any high explosives aboard, nor was she wasn't send into danger deliberately.
Squashing this widely believed (sadly) conspiracy theory about the Lusitania is something I'm very keen on. It's an insult to those who died in her sinking and to a beautiful Clydebuilt ship.
Sensationalist TV documentaries and newspaper articles that are very selective with their evidence don't help either.
What I want to know is what is the position of the new owners on this ?
Will they make clear in their exhibitions that they accept the weight of evidence that there were no explosives on board and that the ship was not deliberately sent into a danger zone ?
Will they be ambiguous about the matter ?
Or will they keep repeating Mr Bemis' completely unfounded claims (despite lab experiments that he himself funded proving "the second explosion" had to have been either an explosion of the boilers or else the main steam line) that the hold was filled with explosives and the other nonsense that Churchill basically orchestrated her sinking by U-20 ?
