BTW, this doesn't seem like the kind of question to ask for a Topic of the Month. If I ever made a suggestion, it would be: I read once that the US Inquiry was initially set up by politicians, looking for who was responsible. They had to point a finger. If we had to point a finger to somebody for being responsible for the sinking, who would we point at?
I read on titanichg.com that the boatswain mate was the one who presumably died below decks after opening a door on D Deck. But the boatswain mate survived in lifeboat 9. Why is it still common believe that the boatswain MATE opened those doors and died?
