Confidence Level
Ayyub Dahir, Miss Bannurah 12 12 3.86


In Shawneene Whabee's interview in a 1937 issue of The Sharon (PA) Herald,  (available at

    "Sailors armed with revolvers, drove the men away from the boats shouting 'Women and children first'. They shot into the air to frighten the men. Banoura [Ayyub Dahir] and I were placed in the next to the last lifeboat to be lowered from the ship. When it was being lowered, frightened women, fearing it would capsize jumped from it [back onto the deck?].”

According to Scarrott, Poingdestre et. al., warning shots were fired at boat #14 (right next to boat #12), crewmen held men back from those boats etc.  It appears Miss Ayyub Dahir was in #12, along with Mrs. Whabee.
