One of the things that I do every morning is to look at the "on this day" section of ET, especially at bios of the male passenger survivors. Apart from the obvious, much talked about ones like Ismay, Gracie, Beesely, Jack Thayer etc, there appear to be quite a few male passenger survivors in various lifeboats about whom not a great deal is mentioned in various Titanic books and articles. One or two have even turned-up in boats launched by the unbending Lightoller and in their ET biographies there is a bit of uncertainty as to how they reached those boats. I am not going to mention any names but that lends support to my belief that there are people who simply have much greater instinct for survival than others and in situation such as on board the Titanic that night, keep a lookout and quietly take the first chance that comes their way. I don't blame them at all.
