What part of C-deck was Major Godfrey Peuchen's cabin - C-104 - actually located? More specifically, can someone compute around approximately what time that cabin became inaccessible as the Titanic continued sinking?

C-104 was located aft of the main grand staircase on the port side. Basically, imagine you're walking down the grand staircase and you reach the C-Deck landing, and you are facing aft. Walk towards the corridor on your right, and then turn to the 1st door on your left. That's where C-104 was located on the Titanic.

Thank you. I take it that would mean it remained dry and accessible till late in the sinking.

There is a potential story in it. Major Peuchen left the Titanic on Lifeboat #6 with 3 oranges at about 01:10 am, when Lightoller ordered the lifeboat lowered. On a table in the now empty Cabin C-104 is a small tin box with $200,000 in negotiable bearer bonds which Peuchen left behind, taking the oranges instead. At 01:35 am, an unnamed steward, going to lock the room, finds the box and its contents. He decides to take them and half-an-hour later manages to find a place on Collapsible D................:D
