I've seen seen scenes in movies and documentaries where they show survivors in the lifeboats waving around flares. Did they have flares in the lifeboats? I read an article that said there were no flares and that a few of the survivors who hand taken lamps or flashlights were told to turn them off so people in the water wouldn't attempt to swamp the boats. I haven't been able to verify this. Anybody know anything about it?
