Just happened to stumble on this article/website as I just watched a History Channel documentary about Titanic that had mention testimony given by Col Gracie. After reading this bio on Gracie, I am surprised that he isn't mentioned more often in Titanic legends and lore. The guy was a hero during the disaster and gave very detailed specifics about the sinking and it's aftermath. I am going to try and find more reference material on this interesting man. Thank You for providing these details of this "gentleman".
