Californian


Hi, I am interested in the role the Californian played in or as it now shows, Did'nt play in the Titanic Saga. Following this tragedy Captain Lord came in for a lot of bad publicity,and as such had to live out his life branded as the Captain that did nothing. Others views on this please. Navigator II

Re: Californian


I think the Californian's Captain was very Unfairly treated after the disaster.

Well said Tom, at last I seem to have met someone who thinks the same as me about the way Captain Lord was treated. Thank you. Navigator

Re: Californian


HI Navigator

Ohh come now me mellowing :-) I am sure you know me better than that, like the Canadian mounty I always get my man. I also run by the saying revenge is when I want it . So yes ok I have mellowed a slight.

As for Lord, well I personaly would stand up for the Capatain as I doubt he had any options to get to Titanic anyway. Stuck in ice pack ship switched off etc. Reading the reports from both Inquieries I do believe he did not have a case to answer to and once again inbthe titanic world he has been made a scapegoat.

Re: Californian


Graham and Tom I think we agree here on one thing that Lord was unfairly treated, I remember reading on another site sometime ago about Walter Lords Case, But can't think for the life of me where it was. I will check through webrings and google to see if I can track down that site. I know at the time of my visit it seemed to be getting a lot of attemtion. So if I find it again I will let you know. But as I say I have been trying to remember it for weeks now. Navigator
