Hello everyone.

In the area of the aft grand staircase on c-deck there is a quite a small cabin, C-142 (probably one of the smallest I have seen in first class!). The deck plans show within this room quite a large 'H'.

Does anybody know what this 'H' is? It cannot be a heater as there is already one in the room. I am very intrigued as to what this actually is.

Any help will be most appreciated :)

Hi sir,

You have piqued my interest, but alas I have no answer for it. I find it interesting that it is bigger than the wardrobe, and half the size of a bed. Now I wonder what it is that I would see to my right on entering cabin C-142..

Good luck finding the answer! According to the Cave list, that cabin was occupied by Mr. Austin Partner. He died in the sinking, but his body was recovered. https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-victim/austin-partner.html

Thank you very much for your reply.

I too, have no current answer for it but for now (and until I find the answer) I shall speculate that it was a secret hot tub (joke!!).

At first I thought it to be a hoist, but i cannot seem to find this on the deck above or below. One shall keep researching! Thank you for the additional information.

It is indeed the shaft for a small service hoist, rather like a dumb waiter. It connects the restaurant kitchen on B Deck above with the main kitchen on D Deck below. Look again at the deck plans and you should see it clearly marked in both kitchens (between hull frames 49 and 50, towards the port side).

Excellent! I thought along the same lines at Ricky B (and tried tracing it from the deck above and below) but didn't see the notations.
