I've just read that Titanic's Life Rings were blank, I always thought that they had "R.M.S. Titanic" along the top and "Liverpool" along the bottom. Can anybody give me some more information on this Subject. Thanks.
True, but that of course didn't prevent the emergence of one of the great cliches of cinema - all those old films in which a young couple lean against a ship's rail in the moonlight to discuss all the wonderful things they will do with the rest of their lives, before the camera tracks to one side and reveals a life ring with a very familiar name!
