>>His daughter said it was.<<

Like Jason said, so what?

She didn't do any of the forensic work or investigations either by way of the inquiry or the eventual examination of the wreck and debris trail.

Further, what Captain Bartlett said in his official report, given first hand by his own hand says otherwise.

Matthew, I watched the Youtube video, and noted what Paul Louden-Brown said.

But repeating one person's opinion does not change things.

The Captain probably believed, or wanted to believe, that it was a torpedo.
The Lusitania tragedy might have been on his mind, so he could have figured that a torpedo was involved.

But that, still, does not, by itself, make it so.

I was just talking about Captain Bartlett's opinion on what it was that sunk the Britannic Im not trying to prove that Britannic was torpedoed by him saying that he thought it was a torpedo.

So what? We're talking about what Captain Bartlett himself actually said in his own official report. In terms of trying to get at what a given person believed about an event, regardless of whether or not that belief is accurate, I'll go with what the primary source himself said.

his opinion was that she was sunk by a Torpedo
That train-of-thought might have been influenced by many things, but in the end it was just an opinion.
And from what Michael has stated, it is in contradiction to what the official report has Captain Bartlett listed as saying.

His daughter said he thinks the ship was torpedoed.The official report is inaccurate and of course it's not evidence to prove Britannic was torpedoed but it does prove that Captain Bartlett thinks the ship was torpedoed like his daughter said.

We heard you the first time. The daughter's claim is irrelevant.

>>The official report is inaccurate and of course it's not evidence to prove Britannic was torpedoed but it does prove that Captain Bartlett thinks the ship was torpedoed like his daughter said.<<

When a report claims that the ship was mined...and it does...than it does NOT prove that Captain Bartlett believes that the ship was torpedoed.

Matthew, this is becoming more than a little tiresome. The daughter's claim is useless as evidence and Captain Bartlett's report doesn't support the claim you're asserting.

Period.

Time to move on.

Clearly you know that his daughter heard him say he thinks it was torpedo as Paul Louden-Brown said so.Im talking about Captain Bartlett's opinion nothing else.Im not saying that proves it was a torpedo that sunk Britannic rather it just proves Captain Bartlett view on what sunk the vessel was a Torpedo Attack.

Bye Bye Now
