I watched a video recently that representatives of the white star line went to alot of the survivors whilst in the midst of their grief & offered them 25 dollars & to sign a legal waiver to any legal cases against the white star line most signed & received this measly payoff. This fellow was smart. Another very sad fact is unlike Cameron's movie that showed the 3rd class passengers locked behind the iron gates unable to get to the upper decks ( in the movie they smashed them down & got up to the decks ) the reality was brought to light upon the dives of the wreck that the third class were in fact locked trapped behind the iron gates & they were not broken so many perished in the lower decks before the ship even went down. The magnitude of this tragedy is mind blowing when you dig deeper into the events that were that April morning when titanic sank. 🙏🏼🕊
Not reducing speed!
Of course White Star to blame. Insufficient lifeboats. Sloppy safety measures.
One strong person to take on the great shipping giant. That's the great Irish stengh.
the titanic if not sunk would have entered into troop transport service for the brittish admrilty in world war 1 or 2. or converted into a hospital ship like the brittanic who sadly struck a mine and went down. titanic could have also lived untill the thirtys and been scrapped if not sunk.
i am bookmarking this documentary for future review .
Thank you so much for sharing!
Insurance fraud....Looking at the possibilities the Titanic may have been really been the damaged Olympic...the Olympic had 2 big collisions that rendered her marine unregisterable with a twisted keel...yet she went on to work till 1935, highly unlikely....Driven at high speed through a iceberg infested waters on moonlight night, and could not turn quickly enough suggested twisted hull, passenger reported a tilt or list.
The Carpathian sitting dead in the water with a hold full of wollen jerseys, why, they were waiting for something.
Why did so many Irish go to the USA when the UK was much closer and convenient?
Could Captain Lord have been complicit in the conspiracy to sink Astor and friends with the Titanic? Astor was against the setting up of the Federal Reserve Board. Suggestions sound laudable that Astor and millionaire co-travelers friends were specially invited on the maiden voyage to ensure that the Federal Reserve Board could be set up unopposed. Was JP Morgan in cahoots with his superiors to ensure that the Titanic would sink thus allowing them to print money without constraint and who possibly could have been superior to JP Morgan, one of the wealthiest men in the world? Despite warnings of ice, the Titanic did not slow down under the command of perhaps the ablest sea captain of his time. The Titanic was doomed to sink.
What a great story and bless Thomas Ryan for wanting answers and justice for the loss of his son. That was a brave man to take on the Company and the High Court. The money doesn't sound like much nowadays but would have obviously been worth more then than now and wasn't the point anyway, no amount of money can make up for the loss of life of any individual but it's worth a great deal to have your views respected by law and to win your case. I'm really moved by this story. It's a triumph!
Pity Mr. Ryan didn't know the the stricken ship was on fire since leaving Belfast. Eye-witness firemen who survived, "Paddy the Pig" and John Dilley who gave an interview to the New York Herald, on the 20th April 1912, confirmed that the fire had spread to an adjacent bunker.
The ship couldn't have slowed down as the firemen were desperately shovelling the burning coal into the boilers. Look like they paid off Mr. Ryan to avoid further inquiries. !!!
An interesting story, the one "the owners didn't you to know about" and the BBC it seems.

The Californian was heading, very expensively, to Boston with a cargo of 3000 woollen jumpers and blankets, in Spring. Lloyds of London, wasn't torpedoed in WW1, so cargo records don't go down with any ship.

The notification of the "repair" the Consultative Document LL No. 22818, sent to the Board of Trade, and date stamped 14th Feb.1912. stated that alterations to the seams, in the area of boiler room 6, were to be carried out because of seepage caused in a January storm, to the OLYMPIC. No such modification was carried out of the ship that sailed on for another 20 years.

The recent documentary Titanic Answers From The Abyss Pt. 1 shows the 200 ft. gash, the rivet "unzipping" theory, the hull puncture, where just stories, myths, Holly Wood movies. It does, however, give you a close-up of the only breach of the hull, the "repair" at boiler room 6.
So, to sum up, only four scratches on the bow, and since All the boilers were found to be intact, what were the four loud explosions , at the stern, that ALL survivors heard, caused by.?

I stayed at the Commodore Hotel in Cobh many years ago and recall pictures of the Titanic alongside the Atlantic Quay on display there. Or so I thought, as this documentary seems to indicate people were ferried out to the vessel. Any confirmation ? Maybe age has dulled my memory.
As an American of partial Irish descent (County Antrim) and a Titanic enthusiast, this documentary is a very welcome part of my Titanic viewing experience, as I'd always wondered about both the post-sinking aspect of the story and the little-discussed perspective of the ship being a pivotal, albeit tragic, part of Irish history. In addition, I'd always wanted to hear the stories of living descendants of both Titanic survivors & victims and this one made me tear up, especially hearing about how White Line really tried, as greedy corporations do to this day, to use the lamest of excuses to try to cover themselves. So glad Patrick Ryan's father beat that heartless corporate goliath even as he had to pay a terrible toll.
That's an amazing documentary. It's a sad and inspirational story that should have been said before.
Good for Thomas Ryan!
eh always seen and all the stories of the titanic and other ships
