I'm writing this thread to add some things that are not usually known about the Titanic. It has taken me a year of watching the internet for little
pieces of information that crop up and saving the links. I have not sat here and searched the net every day, I've just grabbed things I found whilst
generally being online.
This is not about what happened and why.. this is more of a resource.
There recently was a fantastic thread on ATS about Titanic which includes a video documentary that I will be using a portion of.
The full thread can be found here
On with the list ...
ONE OF NEW YORK’S BIGGEST TITANIC CONNECTIONS
Ninety-nine years ago yesterday Titanic struck an iceberg just before midnight on April 14, 1912. When it sank a short time later, at 2:20
So there you have it.. a thread of info that took a year to complete.. Some of the info is astonishing, many things I did not know. I've been eagerly
waiting to post this and now on the 100th year, to the day, I can finaly post.
But first, I want to go back to the thread I mentioned at the top of this post.. The thread that talks about the Titanic being the Olympic.
Let's take a look at the very first few minutes of the second video where we get to learn the difference between the Titanic and the Olympic via its
Olympic has 16 portholes... Titanic 14...
So which ship is this with 15?
Yes, I know it says Olympic on the side.. but it has 15 portholes..
but here it is with 16...
here is the Titanic with 16
and here is Titanic in Belfast before its funnels were fitted.. Notice it has only 14 portholes..
I think those last two pictures of the Titanic are the evidence that the two ships were switched..
But we still cannot account for the ship which seems to have 15 portholes..
The Britanic has 17...
There was a TV programme called 'find my past' aired the other night about relatives of titanic victims/survivors and they showed the Titanic in
various places as you'd expect for a tv show.. and I just happened to notice that the portholes of the ship being shown as the Titanic has 15
Where is, what is this mysterious ship with 15???
Are we seeing direct evidence of photo manipulation in order to confuse people.. are we seeing whistle blowing activity in progress.. Was someone told
to add extra portholes to the negative images.. but only added one due to mishearing or deliberate disobedience??
Thank you for the years work. Lots of reading to do I think. A question about the portholes. Has the wrecks portholes ever been counted? If the ship
was hit below that line, then they should still be able to be counted.
Am currently trying to find something that portrays the bow at the bottom of the ocean.. Not an easy task due to the amount of rust and limited photos
through search popularity.. but...
Have founds this so far; designyoutrust.com...
Am trying to locate the source for this image compilation.. It might give us the answer we're after.
And a nice little video that mixes ghoslty images of passengers and crew with the wreck.. As the video states, the Titanic is STILL on its maiden
This could be the moment where the "Titanic" was refitted to look like the Olympic (if indeed they were swapped over). A prime opportunity like this
to completely cover up the events.
On 9 October 1912 White Star withdrew Olympic from service and returned her to her builders at Belfast to be refitted to incorporate lessons
learned from the Titanic disaster. A complement of 64 wooden lifeboats were installed along the boat deck, stacked two high. In
addition, an inner watertight skin was constructed in the boiler and engine rooms and some of the watertight bulkheads were extended up to B-deck.
At the same time, alterations and additions to her passenger cabins were carried out on B Deck which necessitated deleting her B Deck promenades –
one of the few features that separated her from her sister ship. With these changes, Olympic's gross tonnage rose to 46,359 tons, 31 tons larger than
Titanic's. In 1913, Olympic returned to service and briefly regained the title of largest ocean liner in the world, until SS Imperator entered
passenger service in June 1913.
The true heroes of the hour rise from their graves as we leanr more and more...
Then there are those who may have been involved in a cover up or were just plain daft and past their working life, or completely innocent and did the
best they could in such difficult times. But going on his past record aboard the Olympic, who can really say? Titanic: Captain Edward John Smith's legacy
The designer of the Titanic went down with his ship, whereas the man whose company owned the liner left on the last lifeboat, a decision he almost
immediately regretted. The most senior officer to survive the tragedy later went on to become a hero at Dunkirk in World War II. The first man to
see the iceberg that sank the liner was a reluctant witness at the two inquiries into the sinking, and ended up taking his own life.
