''I was told to get into lifeboat 15 as one of the crew, before we left there was an appeal for any more women and children but none came. I saw women refusing to leave their husbands. I think the worst part of the disaster was just after the ship went down. The groans were awful, and of course we could do nothing. I shall never forget it.''
