This post is more related to Olympic than Titanic crewmen, but as it involves the same kind of knowledge on crew and employees of the White Star Line I thought it most suitable to post here, where the 'crew people' hang out.

My question concerns a 'Captain Warner' or 'Captain Wainer,' intials either 'G.E.' or 'G.S.' A strange set of variations, I know, but I am inclined to think the name was 'Captain G. S. Warner.' At any rate, his first initial was certainly a 'G.' I know very little about him, although he was serving aboard Olympic from August 1930 (possibly a little before, I haven't my 1929-early 1930 notes with me at the moment) following Captain White's captaincy) to the start of January 1931. In writing a piece at the moment concerning the ship at this time, I cannot seem to find anything to clarify his name and initials. All I really have is the signature, which is hard to read. If anybody could help clarify the position for me it would be much appreciated and thankfully acknowledged.

Best regards,

Mark.

Have you tried entering these various name possibilities on the Ellis Island site to see what you come up with? It may not give you anything useful, but it's worth a try.

Hi Tracy!

Thanks very much for the suggestions. I've now tried 'Warner' on Olympic but there are five matches, all before 1929 and 1930. 'Wainer' turned up one sixty-one-year old Russian on Olympic in 1921. So I am afraid it doesn't seem there is a record.

Best regards,

Mark.
