#45083, "Titanic gym instructor"


  

          

I'm a little bit confused, again, with the real name of 'Titanic' gymnasium trainer...

Walter Lord calls him Mr. McCawley, and Mr. Wright... while Norwegian Erik Fosnes Hansen, for ex., states that instructor's name was Lindström, and he was Norwegian, too... Or there were several gym trainers on 'Titanic' simultaneously, in fact??

Please, help me to find out the truth, people!

Thanks in advance,

Eugene.

It was Thomas William McCawley, born in 1876, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Thank God, and thank you, Jonathan!

Now it's clear to me, finally! So we can see his moustached face on this famous photo, indeed! :>

Still many thanks for the clarification!

Eugene.

On the night of the disaster, he was asked as to why he was not wearing a lifejacket. He replied along the lines that it would restrict his swimming strokes.

Yes, although it hasn't saved him from death in the freezing Atlantic waters, unfort...

PS. This Father Browne's photo is undoubtedly great, of course, but, among others, there is one gymnasium view which I like especially (with the world map and ship's image) - see the attachment...

Thanks, once again, Jonathan!

Eugene.

But what's the difference between these 2 gyms? How to identify, could you explain, please, Jonathan?

Regards,

Eugene.

The principle difference was in the glass-front display. The maps and images differ between the two. Pick up a copy of "Titanic and Olympic: Which Ship Sank?" - it has a full explanation and comparision photos.

I believe Wright was the instructor on the squash court.

Fredrick Wright, 24 from Great Billing, Northamptonshire, was the racquet court steward. He did not survive.

In James Cameron's Titanic Explorer there is a segment where Mr. McCawley is in the gym with the Astors as the ship is sinking, and he makes mention of not wearing a lifebelt in case it "impedes stroke".

Countless thanks for all your patient & detailed explanations, dear Art and Marcel "wolfgangelessar"! Now the situation is much clearer to me, thanks to you, guys!

And, of course, this book ("Which Ship Sank?") is an absolute 'Must-have', needless to say... Thanks for recommend!

Gratefully and benevolently yours,

Eugene.
