The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

Liverpool University Press

This chapter studies the movement of third class men and their portrayal in the inquiries. It returns to Foucault’s theory of dangerous individuals and pays particular attention to the shooting incident at Lifeboat 14 - an acute example of the officers’ fear of third class men. It concludes by stating there were no eyewitness accounts of either a large crowd of men trying to fit onto two boats, or any shots fired during the loading of Lifeboat 4. It suggests the existing evidence for both events is insufficient.
