Did any of Charles Lightoller, Herbert Pitman, Joseph Boxhall and Harold Lowe keep in touch in the years following the disaster or not ?

Boxhall and Pitman did at least meet once more (and were pictured together) in 1958 at the London premiere of A Night To Remember.

There's a photo floating around on Wikipedia of Lightoller with Pitman. That might have been from during the inquiries though.

Pitman visited Boxhall in March 1961.


I don't think there was much 'esprit de corps' between the surviving officers of Titanic.

Thank you for that Julian.

I guess we could chalk up Boxhall and Pitman as one example of the surviving officers staying in touch.

From what I've read about him, Lowe seems to have been the kind of person who just preferred his own company and that of his immediate family. He doesn't seem like one to have kept up a correspondence or arranged to meet and discuss "old times"
