I don't think I've seen a thread for this so far, and the Search results couldn't find one either. Kind of surprising, considering that the anniversary is tomorrow.
Admittedly, I wasn't very interested in this until recently, but the whole thing - the stories, the myths, the loses, the wreck itself - can be pretty amazing and interesting.
I live just down the road from where J. Bruce Ismay (director at White Star, one of the survivors) was born and Stanley Lord (captain of the SS Californian, long believed to have ignored the distress calls from the ship) is buried.
It's a tragic story, once you really think about it.
(I get the feeling that this thread already exists elsewhere, apologies if so).
I'll try and keep this short. It sank at 2:20am (5:18am UTC/00:15 EST) on the 15th of April, 1912.
Does anyone have anything interesting to add to this?
