220px-Elsie_Bowerman_circa_1910On the night of April 14, 1912, a young man named Robert Hitchens was on the bridge steering the gigantic ship. At 1140, there was the sound of three bells, and suddenly the bridge on the phone started to ring. The call was from the crow’s nest, it was answered, and what was said was quickly passed onto the man in charge of the bridge at that moment, First Officer William Murdoch.  Murdoch saw what the fuss was all about, an iceberg right in the path of the Titanic, and he took action.  Hitchens was told to turn the wheel, and he did, but it was too late.

The name of this woman was Elsie Edith Bowerman. [click to continue…]
