Below are the numbers given by survivors on collapsible Engelhardt lifeboat A and B and the names of known occupants:I am writing something about titanic survivors in the water, can anybody give me names of people who where on collapsibles A/B before titanic broke up, so I can read what they saw, thank you.
Thank you for the correction and additional information Mr. Engberg-Klarström. May I personally thank you for your outstanding work on the updated and more well researched listing of which survivor was in which lifeboat?Oscar Wilhelm Johansson was probably not on collapsible A; he left in a lifeboat together with Oscar Hedman, according to one interview with Mr. Hedman (who gave several, partly contradictory, interviews about his escape)
First class passenger George Alexander Lucien Rheims (1879-1963) told fellow first class passenger Edith Louise Rosenbaum (1879-1975) about a woman on Collapsible Engelhardt lifeboat A, who is believed to have been miss Evans. He told her the following story, these are in miss Rosenbaum her own words:I remember reading an account that Edith Corse Evans was standing in a boat, but she was tired and ended up falling to her death, maybe she was in boat B before the break up, or boat A, they say that she fell and tried to climb up but she couldn't
Collapsible B - Norwegian passenger Albert Moss was swimming in the water and reached the capsized lifeboat, already filled with people on top. Shut him off! They said to the man closest to Albert.
Albert mentioned in an interview back in the 50's- that he believed the man to be Phillips.
Phillips responded: I cannot!
At the same time Lighholler was spotted swimming towards the boat and got the others attention and Albert Moss got his chance to climb up on the boat.
Albert Moss gave a total of five interviews during his lifetime. His grandson, Dag Bertelsen, has written a book about him.
haves you the interviews ?If he saw Jack Phillips - we'll never know. Albert Moss only mentioned a man named Phillips on top of the capsized lifeboat. At least in two of his interviews.
interesting.. Had he written a book about hes memories?If he saw Jack Phillips - we'll never know. Albert Moss only mentioned a man named Phillips on top of the capsized lifeboat. At least in two of his interviews.
