ok, where do you guys find all this stuff? I've been researching Titanic since I was in the 5th grade and you guys seem to put me to shame. Where do you find it?
I understand what your trying to say there and I thought myself that he got a raw deal but then I think that it was his company that owned the ship and that those passengers who didn't make it were in a way his passengers so I can understand why everyone was so upset with him back then! In some people's minds he'd ripped those passengers off who had died and survived to tell about it! Although once the "Compensation Hearings" got underway it would be a different story, somewhat although even then the "Surviving Families" felt that they had received a raw deal and they could of found people in the street who agreed with them! Hindsight about Ismay to me is always 20/20 and I leave it at that! Fascinating discussion though! Hope to read through it in depth when I have more time.quote:
I didn't mean he prevented any women and children I don't think he would've gotten on if there were still women and children around what I mean the if the life boats where suppose to be for all the women and children on the ship first (as Ligholler took it) before they ever started loading up men then Ismay and any other man that got on a life boat when women and children were still on the Titanic would be considered a coward.
