Exactly how accurate is Mrs. Collyer's extended piece on the Titanic sinking, and of Officer Lowe's actions and behavior during and after it? Is there any substantiating evidence towards any of her more melodramatic statements, and more important, were female passengers allowed to remain in the boat which went back to rescue survivors? I know that it is mentioned that he divided his passengers up between other boats prior to going back, but did some remain with him, and could Mrs Collyer have been there to hear that "Jap" comment? For what it is worth, I tend to think that she embroidered the story somewhat, or that a reporter "fleshed out" her outline, or that she was (justifiably) bitter over what happenned and used Lowe as a target. Am I off base here?
