    This is also the officer that said “I still don’t like this ship, I have a queer feeling about it”. I believe he old this to his sister in a letter sent from Queenstown. Enjoyed the article.

    • Thank you indeed for adding to the post —and wasn’t he right to have queer feeling about it! I believe that he was one of the most helpful officers on board in helping many women and children get to the life boats.
