I meant that I have never read any testimony by survivors or experts that he died any other way. The theory that he was crushed by a funnel is plausible because his body was covered in soot and was badly crushed.Your post was unclear, so I elaborated on the best I could gather from it.
As I have stated in the elaborate post above, his body was in fact NOT covered in soot nor badly crushed.I meant that I have never read any testimony by survivors or experts that he died any other way. The theory that he was crushed by a funnel is plausible because his body was covered in soot and was badly crushed.
Again, it's all in the post above. Four separate quotes with the individuals who stated them. They have been reposted as well in many newspaper articles and literature.Your source?
Once the ship had put to sea, Moody stood the 4–5 PM watch and both 8–12 watches, which meant that he was on watch with First Officer William Murdoch and Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall when the Titanic struck an iceberg at 11:40 PM on 14 April. After spotting the iceberg, lookout Frederick Fleet rang the warning bell three times and phoned the bridge. It was Moody who answered the call, asking, "What do you see?" Fleet replied, "Iceberg, right ahead!"I know this has been asked a lot, but we don't know the whereabouts of Officer Moody before the ship went down, correct? From Officer Lowe's testimony that seems to be the last anyone saw of him.
I was rewatching James Cameron's film 'Titanic' (mainly the sinking scenes and after, searching out for officers or historical facts that I knew) and, right before Jack's friend Fabrizio gets crushed by the first falling funnel, Offcier Moody is seen clinging to one of the collapsible lifeboats. At least, I'm nearly positive it's him because the only other officer that looked midly similar was Lowe, and he was already sent off on a boat.
Anybody have any other testimonies or interviews of people that may indicate where Officer Moody had been seen last?
