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.
