Titanic crew brought to Millbay Docks

Post  Forum Mod on Fri Mar 30, 2012 10:13 am

Since we're approaching the centenary of the sinking of the "Titanic" I thought I would post this -

http://www.plymouth.gov.uk/millbay_docks_25-32.pdf

If you scroll down a bit there are some nice photos of the surviving crew members at Millbay (the surviving passengers were taken to New York). There are conspiracy theories suggesting that it was not "Titanic" that sink , but rather that it was her sister ship "Olympic", and that the crew were sent here to keep them away from the prying eyes of the press etc., and was all part of the cover up, but the pictures here don't seem to back that up. Still, another piece of Plymouth's history that seems to slip under many peoples radar.

That was fascinating! I never knew about that connection between Plymouth and the Titanic. So they were held to give statements? Poor beggars probably just wanted to get home Crying or Very sad
