There's an article from The New York Times containing one of the sea scout's version here, and the entire run of the NYT coverage of the sinking appears in this thread, for those of you who might be interested.

Hi Guys-
The good thing is that there is more Britannic to be carried over into the next issue. I hope everyone finds a new bit of info in this one. I notice there has been a surge in interest over the past few years. I very much enjoyed Simon Mills and Mark Chirnsides books on the subject. And of course, am looking forward to the upcoming special.
