In the Hoehling's Last Voyage of the Lusitania, one of the surviving engineers said that he saw Chief Engineer Archibald Bryce in the area where the torpedo struck, right before the attack, implying that Bryce was killed by the torpedo/secondary explosion. In Diana Preston's book, she has accounts of several survivors seeing Bryce on the boat deck during the sinking, and even reassuring one of them that nothing could sink a Scottish-built ship! Did Preston have access to some survivor accounts that the Hoehlings didn't?

Michael, Archie Bryce's body was found later, indicating that he was not trapped below. His first name appears to be Archie rather than Archibald, by the way.
