Mr Cyril Furmstone Evans

Mr Cyril Furmstone Evans, 20, was wireless operator aboard the Californian. On the night of 14 April 1912 he warned Titanic that ice in the vicinity had forced them to stop, but he was rudely rebuffed by the wireless operator of the Titanic, Jack Phillips, who was sending private messages to the wireless relay station at Cape Race.

After this Evans turned in for the night thus failing to hear the distress signals from Titanic which were broadcast a short while later.
