Mr. Barker was the Purser aboard White Star Line's other "unsinkable" ship, RMS Republic. No doubt, he and other Titanic crewmembers had realized that Republic had remained afloat for 39 hours after her collision ...

Reginald Lomond Barker, Purser on the Titanic is a family member by a marriage connection, his brother married my father's sister Olive Davis. Therefore RLB is my uncle's brother. Reginald Lomond Barker has been recorded in the family history by Lynn Snay. Comment added by Austin Davis.

Reginald Barker was Purser on RMS Republic at the time of her loss. It is interesting to note that that reference appears to be suppressed, along wth everything else concerning RMS Republic. Despite the fact that Republic was the largest ship in history lost to her time (succeeded only by Titanic), and 6 lives and all of her cargo were lost,, there was no public inquiry into the loss of this ship - for a reason.
