There probably are: Titanic - End of a Dream reproduces the iceberg sketches; Titanic Voices has a copy of a newspaper interview with Fleet; and The Ship That Stood Still has details of an interview between Reade and Fleet. Only Leslie Harrison, of course, pours cold water on Fleet's story. He wrote to Fleet asking details about the collision, but Fleet, being a simple man, could only write back that he had no idea what Harrison was talking about. Harrison shot back saying that no-one has disputed his "findings" and that no-one could. What rot (and not the first time Harrison did this. Important information that could have gleaned by the helmsman of the Carpathia was lost forever when Harrison became pompous with him)

Cheers

Paul
