(p.105) Chapter 4 Departures
The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

David Gleicher

Liverpool University Press

This chapter continues the study of the period 1:00-1:40am, and concerns the preparing, loading, and launching of lifeboats in relation to the third class passengers. It analyses the authority and responsibility of those in charge of the lifeboats and the capacity to evacuate. It pays particular attention to the discrepancies surrounding the departure time of the first four lifeboats, and aims to prove that the first three lifeboats were launched between 12:20 and 12:35, suggesting the lifeboat departure times as stated by the Mersey Commission Report are inaccurate.
