DAVID BEVAN, FRGS, FBSC: Drums of the Birkenhead

Jan Ploeger

Abstract


"She was entirely alone in her agony, just as much isolated by the suddenness of her ruin as if wireless telegraphy had not existed." Hierdie gedagtes, deur die redakteur van "The Times" uitgespreek in 'n hoofartikel wat hy na aanleiding van die "Titanic"-ramp (15-16 April 1912) geskryf het, bly - wat die eerste gedeelte betref - steeds deur die leser van Drums of the Birkenhead se gedagtes flits.
