First to every one the best wishes for this new year.

Second I like to thank every one who have helped me with information on the Lusitania and her passengers and crew.

I would like to know something more about the following crew members:

Kitchenporter Edward Skay

This is what I know about him:

He survived the disaster, he was the only kitchenporter aboard the ship, I think his nationality was British. And I think his age was 16 years at the time of the disaster.

Bosun John Davies:

This is what I know about him:

He survived the disaster. Was in his sixties and was a non-swimmer. He was the chief bosun, had three crewmembers working under him, of who two survived the disaster too. I think his nationality was British.

James and Florence Sikking:

James was a AB Seaman, while Florence was a Bosun's mate. Both survived the disaster. I think both were British.

Lift Attendants Stanley Rourke and Alex Cowan:

Both survived the disaster. I think both were British. I think that Stanley was about 21 years of age at the time. Of Alex I do not know an age.

First Waiter Vernon Livermore:

Did survive the disaster, saved one of the Steward's boys, I believe it was Cornelius Horrigan. The nationality of Mr. Livermore was British.

Regards,

Hildo
