#54785, "RE: Boiler Room Team"

Hi Axim and Bill,

There were in addition a small group called leading firemen (or leading stokers), one per boiler room for each watch. Frederick Barrett's testimony at the British inquiry gives some insight into the organization: http://www.titanicinquiry.org/BOTInq/BOTInq03Barrett01.php

He stated that in his section (boiler room 6, with four double-ended boilers) there were eight firemen, four trimmers, a leading fireman and an engineer on duty, which largely agrees with Bill's estimate.

Regards,
Ralph
