British Inquiry
Testimony of
James Johnstone (Johnstone was mistakenly named Johnson at the Inquiry)

     3430. Were the crew mustering there at the boats? - I think Mr. Wilde asked, “What boat do you belong to” I said, “No. 2.” I am sure he had the list because he said, “That is right.” He said, “Can you pull” I said, “Certainly.” He said, “Stand by the falls.”
    3431. Did you stand there by the falls? - I stood a little bit longer.   

     3440. Was any officer there? - An officer [Boxhall] got into the boat afterwards. This man handed me a lamp out of the boat. I saw a lamp standing on the deck. It was ready-lit. I said, “It will be all right for us,” so I stowed it in there.

     3464. Then what happened? - We got lowered, and then we cut her adrift.
