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.
