Is it possible that those rats we saw scuttling away from the water in Cameron's flick, also survived the sinking? Anywhere they could have hid? canvas bags? wooden hollows? ladies knickers?

Or maybe they sailed away in a pot from the galley.

It was reported at the time that the only survivor of the Titanic's rat population was Albert, the pet (or possibly the reserve food supply) of a 3rd Class passenger who had thoughtfully provided him with a hand-knitted life preserver.

Nor, for his part, was Sewer Cosmo Duff Vermin prepared to "go down like a gentleman."

And as to the exclusive craft on which he departed -

>>He didn't impress Harold Lowe<<

Speaking of whom, Bob, I think you should withdraw your previous remark that "male rats (probably Italian) would stop at nothing..."

I would propose that you substitute the word "Italian" with "furriners" or "members of the Ratin laces."

To quote Dave Gittins: "Google and ye shall find". And if ye find not that which ye seek, take that which ye do find and bend it till it fits.
