This has been a week of good things arriving in the mail, with the Commutator, Voyage and the Atlantic Daily Bulletin all out at once. The ADB has a lot of information on the 2006 convention which is in Liverpool this time, "The great four-funnelled liners" by Geoff Robinson, "The Men Behind the Titanic" by David Hill , "Bruce Ismay-How far does Ismay deserve the reputation he earned in the Titanic disaster?" by Rudi Newman, with editor's reflections on the article included, "Hands Across the Sea, Part III" by Randy Bigham, "The wreck of the forward section of RMS Titanic" with photos of models, by Robert A. Wilson F.R.S.A., plus the usual regular columns from officers. Of particular importance is the fact that someone has posted Miss Dean's address on the internet, which has upset her greatly and caused a deluge of mail and requests for letters, autographs, etc. For as much as we all admire the survivors, and would wish a personal memento, the health of these wonderful historic people is frail, and we all would wish them every comfort and safety by protecting their privacy. Great issue as usual from our friends across the Great Pond.
