British Inquiry
Testimony of Harold Lowe

    15828. Where did you go then? - I then went to No. 14.
    15829. That is right aft on the other side, is it not? - That would be the second forward boat of the after section, and the second boat from aft of the after section.
    15830. Why did you go to her in particular? - Because they seemed to be busy there.
    15831. Did you go to assist there? - I did.
    15832. Who was in charge there? - I do not know who was in charge there. I finished up loading No. 14, and Mr. Moody was finishing up loading No. 16? - Yes.
    15833. You were loading No. 14 and he was loading No. 16? - Yes.
    15834. Did you see anything about No. 12? - No. 12 would be the forward boat - the boat next to me forward? -Yes.
    15835. Yes? - Numbers 12, 14 and 16 went down pretty much at the same time.
    15836. You went in No. 14, did not you? - Yes.
    15837. Did you go by anybody’s orders? - I did not. I saw five boats go away without an officer, and I told Mr. Moody on my own that I had seen five boats go away, and an officer ought to go in one of these boats. I asked him who it was to be - him or I - and he told me, “You go; I will get in another boat.”
    15838. I forget where he comes in order of seniority; is he senior to you or junior to you? - No, he was junior.
    15839. Were you lowered in that boat? - I was lowered in No. 14.
