Belfast Evening Telegraph, May 6, 1912.  Reprinted in Voyage 110:
    "'I was a member of the crew of number l6 lifeboat' commented Mr. Murdock. ....  My boat, a collapsible, was the last to leave the port side - the side to which the vessel listed - and I helped lo get the women and children in. There were about 15 of them. When the boat was full she was lowered away."

Daily Telegraph, April 29th 1912:
Told to go and help with the boats. All the chaps who had been with him at the time of the collision were lost.
    �I was ordered into the last lifeboat, but one, and I was down to row. I found two Chinamen under the seat and I can tell you I wasn�t pleased."

he said the port boat, he specifically said the side to which the ship was listing. That would be D and not C.  However, the Chinese survivors are known to have been saved in Collapsible C instead of D.
