I thought it was time to reintroduce myself to the Board so here goes.
A Titanic enthusiast
I love to travel
I have a wife, daughter and grand daughter
I'll be 50 on March 24th this year.
I have an open mind about most topics
I have had a varied career path, ie., sailor, policeman, soldier of fortune, clergyman, teacher,business man, tecnocrat, etc., etc..
I don't think:
That the bodies "disappeared the morning after"
That Ismay should have gone down with the ship.
That any officer committed suicide.
That "Lights" was especially heroic.
That Third Class had a chance.
That the boats would have buckled.
That Lord told the truth.
That Lord would have been able to do much had he moved California to the "Big steamer firing rockets."
That the Straus' returned to their cabin to wait for the end.
That anything should be removed from the wreck or other wrecks like her.
That Rose was a nice person.
That Cal was a bad guy.
That men should have been seperated from their ladies.
hi Bill I wasn't around the last time you introduced yourself so I'll say hello now
I'd like to think that none of the officers committed suicide too, although I dont have all the evidence to make a concrete opinion on it.
With you completely as far as Cal is concerned! What more could the guy have done for her? And even if he did wear too much eyeliner he wasn't that bad looking either! To be fair to Jack though that was more to do with his fiancees credibility I think lol. as my grandmother would have said Nice girls don't behave like that!
