I was reading "The Irish Aboard the Titanic" last night and was surprised to learn that Purser McElroy's body was wearing a white steward's jacket when found! I though he would have been wearing his darker coat, especially since he was seen outside a lot that night.

Cheers

Paul,

That night he had been [as was his normal duty] in the 1st class restaurant, dining with his passenger friends, of which he had many [see my web site], he would have been wearing a small white diner jacket not a white steward's jacket.

That particular night, there was not much time for changing one’s uniform or anything else.

Hope this is of some help, if there is anything else please let me know. Thanks
