The surviving officers of the Titanic - Messrs. Lightoller, Lowe, Boxhall and Pitman - reached Liverpool by the same ship as Mr. Ismay - the Adriatic.
The fifth officer, Mr. Lowe, who told the American Court of Inquiry that he asked Mr. Ismay, while the boats were being lowered, not to let his anxiety to help hinder the men, attracted much attention from the crowd. It was Mr. Lowe to whom Seanator Smith, the chairman of the inquiry, apologised for having made - through a misunderstanding an unfounded suggestion. Mr. Lowe was frank in his criticisms of some of the newspapers on the other side.
Also among the passengers on the Adriatic were Mrs. Dean. and her two children, survivors of the wreck. Mrs. Dean's husband was lost, and over £60 was collected for her on the Adriatic.
