Testimony of Ernest Archer
18115. And then later on did you go away in boat No. 16? - Yes.
18116. Were there any of the crew in it besides yourself? - Yes, five.
18117. Who were they? - Another able seaman, two firemen, a steward, and a Master-at-arms.
This other 'able seaman' is not identified, but Archer refers to this man several times as his �mate�. Of the surviving members of the Deck Department who cannot be placed in another boat, Forward is the only one who Archer would have likely called �mate�; as both men were in the same watch.
However, we cannot be positive, hence the lower confidence level.
