Our Hero, Capt. Rostron


Not quite sure where Capt. Rostron thread should go so I put it here...now this gent is MY hero! Not only did he come to the rescue of TITANICs survivor, but there is a story that he did so later on with I believe Mauretania, bringing food and medical help to a sailing ship...will have to find the quote in my book on liners. Now THIS Chap is a CAPTAIN!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Although I have been told on good authority if he attempted to do the rescue today, he would have been fired and lost his license for endangering the ship and its passengers.

Well, he did endanger the ship and crew, which would be the charge. Although, if someone really tried to dismiss someone under similar cirumstances today, I imagine the shipping line would have to back down if the hulabaloo was anything like Rostron caused - people have, on occasion, been known to use their heads for more than a hatrack.

im offended i was never given any brains.
[wills goes and pouts in the corner]

anyway i didnt know that they would have gotten charged for that ...the very same thing rostron did .,wow.
then i guess i can understand too because the ship would have been put in serious danger and the crew as well. but i imagine he took caution when entering the icefield.
i have heard before that he came close to hitting a few .

He was and is a hero, unless of course the Carpathia had also hit an iceberg. The little people can rarely win.
