When the wreckage of the doomed ship was first discovered in 1985, a new research commenced into the disaster opening new avenues, uncovering more details about the disaster. James Cameron’s blockbuster with a number of academy and Oscars brought the Titanic into the pop culture, and ever since it has become an integral part of new age.
Recently the pictures of perhaps the last life boat that left the sinking liner surfaced on web shedding the light on some of the last victims of the disaster. The boat was first discovered a month after the Titanic sank, by the crew of RMS Oceanic. On May 13, 1912 crew on board Oceanic spotted a floating piece of wood far off in the distance, some 200 miles away from the site where Titanic sank.
After getting to the lifeboat, the crew discovered the bodies of two firemen who worked in Titanic’s engine room and a first class passenger still dressed in his dinner attire, identified later as Thomson Beattie. In the bottom compartment of the boat the crew found a wedding band with engravings of the names ‘Edvard to Gerda’. The detailed account of the discovery and pictures of the recovery mission of the lifeboat named ‘Collapsible A’ helped the researchers to identify the bodies and tell their stories in great detail.
