Foley, Mr William C. 13

British Inquiry
Testimony of George Beauchamp
    782. Do you know whether there was a man called Major, a fireman, in the boat? - Yes.
    783. Was he rowing? - I believe he was, yes.
    784. And a man called Foley, a steward? - I do not know the steward’s name.

The group discussed where the Board of Trade had come by their information that Foley was in lifeboat 13, and arrived at the conclusion that it was part of Foley’s official deposition, given on arrival in Plymouth in April 1912, which has been subsequently lost.

Without more definite information, the group felt disinclined to give a stronger vote of confidence.
