Moss, Mr Albert Johan ? ? 1.00


There are confilcting accounts.  Some indicate Collapsible B, others that Mr. Moss was ordered into a lifeboat from a deck.

In the Chester Times of April 24, 1912, Mr. Moss was standing among other passengers when the mate of the Titanic asked whether he was a seafaring man.  Getting an affirmative answer, the officer commanded him into one of the lifeboats.

The Nordiske Tidende, April 25th 1912 disagrees.
    "I was so lucky, I can almost say, to be beaten overboard when the funnel fell. That is, I was washed down by the wave that rose after it. I had dressed well, first put on these clothes, then a life belt, then on the outside a raincoat and an ordinary outer coat. I thought to throw them away, as they might be too heavy, but decided that the life belt should hold. There were many who undressed, but that was pure madness.”

    How long were you in the water?"
    "It must have been an hour," I think, "though it is not good to calculate. I swam around; soon I saw a light here and saw a light there, and each time I thought what I saw last was closest. I came up on a raft what they call a ‘collapsible boat.’ It is a flat tank that cannot sink. It was capsized, but we were standing on the keel - about 30 men, I think. "

These two accounts do not agree in the least, we concluded we could not determine which lifeboat he was in.
