The Post Titanic Factoids Quiz


 
Fashion & Cosmetics
We've got two inquiries: How well did you do on our quiz? Have you stopped humming that Celine Dion song however? we can enable with all the initially query, anyway. (The second may need therapy.)
The Post Titanic Factoids Quiz: AnswersTrue or false?
False. The truth is, there is no record of anyone in the White Star Line producing the claim that RMS Titanic was 'unsinkable'. This claim seems to possess been an invention in the yellow press, created up right after the reality. (Yeah, they had sloppy journalism back then, as well.)
two. Titanic's sister ship also sank.
Accurate. HMHS Britannica, getting utilized as a hospital ship through the 1st World War, was sunk on 21 November 1916 off the island of Kea inside the Aegean. The wreck was situated by Jacques Cousteau in 1975.
3. As a passenger, your chances of surviving the disaster had been better for those who had been a woman.
True. 75% of your female passengers survived, as against 20% with the male passengers. It definitely was 'women and kids first', although 50 kids died, 49 of them from steerage. The youngest, Sidney Leslie Goodwin, was only 19 months old.
four. No dogs survived the sinking of RMS Titanic.
False. Accounts differ, but a minimum of two dogs survived, a Pomeranian as well as a Pekingese who had been carried to the lifeboats by their men and women. No cats survived, simply because there had been no cats aboard. (Cats have already been smug about this ever because.)
five. One of the ship's owners disguised himself as a lady so as to board a lifeboat.
False. Bruce Ismay was accused of this, however the charge was not correct. One male passenger later admitted he donned a shawl to acquire on a lifeboat, though.
six. If only the California had arrived sooner.
7. The captain of RMS Titanic went down using the ship, for the reason that this was the accepted Law on the Sea.
Accurate and false. Captain Smith did certainly die during the sinking of Titanic, but the notion that this was expected of ships' captains is romantic nonsense. The concept that his final words towards the crew were 'Be British' seems to be a different unverifiable legend.
eight. In 1912, moviegoers were able to view accurate newsreel footage of Titanic sinking.
False. The 10-minute newsreel that circulated shortly following the sinking contained largely footage of Titanic's sister ship, Olympic, but they passed this off as the genuine write-up. See comments to query 1 above. Oh, and even though we're at it, quit bothering these people around the educational web sites. Jack Dawson was not on the passenger list. Neither was Rose.
9. The sinking of Titanic marked the second greatest maritime loss of life in peacetime up to that day.
True. Loss of life from the Titanic disaster was second only to that with the Mississippi steamboat SS Sultana on 27 April 1865. About 1800 people today died inside the wreck near Memphis, Tennessee. Most sadly of all, many of them have been returning POWs liberated from camps for instance Andersonville.
10. The final song played on Titanic was 'Nearer, My God, to Thee'.
False (possibly). A fantastic deal of ink has been spilt, and pixels disturbed, in answering this question. None of your band members survived, as they sacrificed their own probabilities of security to calm the other passengers. They died with their boots on, and we honour them. A trusted witness, Harold Bride, Titanic's junior wireless operator, mentioned the last song he heard was a common tune referred to as 'Autumn'. It tends to make sense that the band members were playing a thing cheerful. Also, there is certainly the problem that some passengers have been in the US and some from Britain - the two countries used distinctive tunes for 'Nearer, My God, to Thee'. The entire hymn organization was most likely the invention of our old buddies, the yellow press.
We hope you might have located this quiz enlightening. Notice that - unlike numerous Titanic-related websites we've got visited - we have not included any cruise advertisements.If you like celine please Visit our celine online shop! Happy shopping!
