Did Murdoch and Hichens make a fatal steering error?

Postby Dan Parkes on Tue Jul 17, 2012 7:07 pm

In September 2010, Lady Louise Patten, Second Officer Lightoller's granddaughter, released information that accused experienced sailors, First Officer Murdoch and Quartermaster Hichens, of making a fatal steering error and later deliberate negligence by continuing to sail after the collision.

Is there any truth in these serious allegations? I have collated my research and created a page that analyses her theory from both points of view.

You can read it here: http://www.williammurdoch.net/articles_18_Patten_steering_error.html

Any further information, corrections or suggestions etc would be most appreciated!
