Titanic: Selene & Helios, Fire, Ice & War


This is a slightly amended article on the sinking of the Titanic (a shorter version is printed in my firm's Newsletter today). My firm represented the owners in the Board of Trade Enquiry in 1912 and when I started work in 1981 there was a leather bound copy of the Final Report (and of the evidence) in the room in which I first worked. It has been something of an abiding interest ever since. The wreck was discovered in 1985 but it was not until years later that the tale of the funding emerged. And very much more recently a new theory has emerged about how and why so much ice came to be in the path of the vessel. This article touches on these , and other matters. I hope it makes an interesting read.
