I'm confused to this fact. I've read from WIKIPEDIA that Lifeboat A was rescued by it's sister lifeboat, Collapsible D. but in some websites, Collapsible A was rescued by Lifeboat #14... please help. :confused:

It's because I'm making a story.... And I'm getting confused... As you watched Cameron's Titanic, Rose was saved by boat 14. while Cal was in another lifeboat. If boat A was rescued by boat 14, Rose and Cal should meet. or maybe 14 rescued the ones onboard collapsible A first before rescuing people from the sinking site.

Yes, the occupants of boat A were rescued by #14. And yes, you're right, rose was picked up by 14, and Cal was in A. I am surprised that that they
did not see other other. Rose lying prone and taking up a lot of space on a thwart would have attracted anyone's attention, including Cal.
However, the scene has other inventions; 14 should have had its sails up, and Lowe didn't use green flares.

The people in boat A were rescued by lifeboat No. 14 under the command of 5th Officer Lowe. Before that he took collapsible D in tow, but none from boat A was placed into D. Lowe took them all into his boat. (Wikipedia is a bad source!) Regarding the Titanic movie, James Cameron had to change the facts a little (as he did in other parts). Boat 14 rowed back and rescued a few people including Rose. (The rescue of Fang Lang was cut from the final version.) Because Cal is in A the story changed here. Lowe has now the green flares (it was Boxhall in No. 2) and also did not rescued the people from boat A, so that Cal and Rose did not met again. (Until on board Carpathia but also that scene was cut from the final version.)
