Great  pictures. They sort of tell a story don't they?

It does bring to everyone's attention the importance of listening to the life boat drill. More often as not, the majority of passengers from differing countries will ignorantly talk all through the information being given by the ships personnel.

Here is a video of inside the ship last March as she is being broken down

These are just so sad and tragic.

Wow, hard to believe that in 2006 this was a beautiful vessel just entering service after being built by Fincantieri in Italy for 565 million dollars. Here is a partially relevant "blast from the past": 

"Finding of the Court:

"Each member of the crew had a boat assigned to him in printed lists which were posted up in convenient places for the men to see; but it appeared that in some cases the men had not looked at these lists and did not know their respective boats.----

There had been no proper boat drill nor a boat muster.------ Boat drill, regulated according to the opportunities of the service, should always be held."
Question Number 5 (c)
Had a boat drill been held on board, and if so, when?
Answer (c) No

Recommendations:

16. That the men who are to man the boats should have more frequent drills than hitherto. That in all ships a boat drill, a fire-drill, a fire-drill and a watertight door drill should be held as soon as possible after leaving the original port of departure and at convenient intervals of not less than once a week during the voyage. Such drills to be recorded in the official log.

30th July 1912 by: British Board of Trade, Wreck Commisioner, Right Honourable, Lord Mersey----Concerning: loss of the RMS “Titanic”

Sad.

It is a shame.
