Pictures indicate that the Titanic received some changes to the port side portholes on the forecastle on C-Deck after launch. At some point the Olympic received the same change. Britannic had the new porthole configuration at launch. Plans indicate the affected rooms would the crew's galley and seamen's mess. Does anyone know why this would be done? Ventilation? Light? Was White Star concerned enough about crew comfort to make a presumably somewhat expensive change to plating after launch?
