C for Coward
Chief Purser El McRoy was in charge of loading collapsible C. When loading the boat, men jumped into the boat nearly tipping it over! Mr. Carter got in while his wife and children were sill on board(they later divorced). A man whom had Mrs. Astor's shawl passed as a woman. As the boat was lowered, Mr. Ismay got in. There were other cowards like Sir Cosmo Gordon whom got into other boats and those trying to get into Collapsible D. There were many others like a steward that used a child to get into a boat. If you were there, would you be a coward and get into a lifeboat using any means available? Would you go before the other women and innocent children and remember it for the rest of your life? Or would you be a gentleman and be brave? Think about it.
