TITANIC
SAILING
AT TOP
SPEED
- Many people criticised the Titanic's
Captain Edward John Smith - Victim skipper, Captain Edward Smith, for
White Star Line’s managing sailing the ship at 20 knots per hour -
director, J. Bruce Ismay - nearly top speed - over the icebergs
Survivor of the North Atlantic Ocean. Because
this was Captain Smith's final voyage,
some speculated that he was
attempting to set a speed record.
Furthermore, he disregarded at least
seven warnings of impending
icebergs. According to some
eyewitnesses, he became paralysed
with terror and rendered ineffective
during the evacuation. With all of the
warnings, many people puzzled why
Smith did not slow down in reaction
to the iceberg threat. Some surviving
passengers believe Captain Smith
was encouraged to sail as quickly as
possible by White Star Line's
managing director, J. Bruce Ismay,
who wanted to arrive in New York
ahead of schedule in order to
generate positive press for the new
ship.

Survivor

Harold Bridge Titanic Wireless Operator

Titanic Wireless Operator,
Harold Bridge

Harold Bride was the Titanic's second wireless operator. He was escorted ashore from
Carpathia. After diving into the sea, he was retrieved, but his feet were severely
frozen. In his account of the disaster, he says the ship was fortunate to be able to send
out the wireless call that brought the Carpathia and resulted in the rescue of more
than 700 passengers and crew members. He was sleeping at the time of the crash, and
the first operator, Philips, was working extra hours due to a wireless outage. Bride was
startled awake by the impact, and he went to Philipps' aid.
I got out of bed to relieve him because I remembered how tired he was. I didn't even
feel surprised. I didn't realise anything had happened until the captain arrived. There
was no jolt at all.
I was standing next to Phillips, telling him to go to bed, when the captain entered the
cabin.
'We've hit an iceberg, and I'm having an examination done to see what it's done for
us,' remarked the skipper. Prepare to issue a distress call. 'However, don't send first
until I tell you.'
The captain left, and in ten minutes, if I'm not mistaken, he returned.
"What exactly are you sending? "he inquired.
Phillips replied, 'CQD.'
The situation's humour appealed to me. I interjected with a remark that made
everyone, including the captain, laugh.
"Send SOS," I instructed. 'This is the new call, and it might be your last chance to send
it.'
Phillips changed the signal to SOS.
We remained at our posts but were forced out onto the deck by the water surging
into the wireless room.
Just before the ship sank, a wave washed him overboard. He was holding an oarlock,
and when he landed, he was beneath an upturned boat. The boat was quickly righted,
and he saw the Titanic when she was 150 feet away.He stayed at his posts until the
ship's power was nearly exhausted. Bride washed off the ship when the boat deck
flooded, and was rescued later that morning by the Carpathia.
