Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic so I thought I’d better do a post about it.
Who would I be though, if I just showed you an article about the tragedy? I mean, you know the story and have probably all seen Leonardo and Kate do their thing on the big screen. What could I add to that?
When I was looking for a different angle on the tragedy that was the sinking of the Titanic I found this story.
Some 16 months after the Titanic sank below the waves some ships came into dock with the unlikely story of seeing a massive hull drifting in the area where the infamous ship went down.
Several expeditions were planned to search for, and take control of this mystery hull.
Now, you don’t need me to tell you that the hull of the Titanic is still resting safely in two pieces at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean right near where it went down, so I wonder what it was that these ships had seen? Did anybody really think that such a large ship could sink, and then a short time later bob back to the surface?
I wonder if all of the treasure that was reportedly aboard the Titanic when she went down was an encouragement to the people arranging the expeditions?
