British Inquiry
Testimony of Paul Mauge
    20153. (The Commissioner.) Did you see any boats put into the water? - Yes, I saw some; just the last one.
    20154. (The Attorney-General.) On which side do you mean? - On this side.
    20155. The starboard side? - Yes.
    20156. Do you mean the last one of the last four? - It was the second or third, I cannot say which of the two.
    20157. Do you mean you saw the second or third of the last four boats on the starboard side let down into the water? - Yes.
    20158. And filled with women and children, were they? - No, because some of the women stayed with their husbands and would not like to go.
    20159. You got into one of the boats, did you not? - Oh, no; the second or third lifeboat was between two decks and I jumped directly from the top deck to this lifeboat. About six or ten persons were jumping in it.
    20160. Now let me understand that. Are you speaking now of the second or third lifeboat of those last four on the right side? - Yes.
    20161. It had been lowered, or was being lowered to the water? - Yes, it was going to the water, but it was between two decks when I jumped.
    20162. But it was stopped between the two decks? - Yes, was stopped between the two decks.
    20163. And then you jumped into it? - Yes.
    20164. About 10 feet? - I cannot say; I do not know.
    20165. (The Commissioner.) How big a jump did you take? Just show us along this curtain? - About half this, perhaps (pointing).
    20166. Down to where you are standing? - Yes, to the lifeboat.
    20167. (The Attorney-General.) He said about 10 feet.

It sounds like Mauge entered the second or third boat in the aft starboard quadrant, perhaps lifeboat #13.

Interview with Mrs. Gold and Mrs. Martin, Liverpool Post and Mercury, May 1, 1912:
    “An Italian [Paul Mauge?], who was making a first voyage as a restaurant attendant, jumped off the liner into another boat, breaking the ankle of Mrs. Parrish, one of the second class passengers.”

This would suggest that Mauge and Parrish were both in lifeboat #10 or #12, but these are boats on the starboard side, which disagrees with Mauge's statement in Question 20155 above.
