AS PLAYED BY:
Captain Edward John Smith, RD, RNR (27 January 1850 – 15 April 1912) was an English naval reserve officer, and ship's captain. He was the officer in command of the RMS Titanic and died when the ship sank in 1912.
It is not known how Smith died on the night of the sinking. historians and Robert Ballard's book, "The Discovery of the Titanic", claim that Smith went into the bridge at 2:13 AM, 7 minutes before the final sinking and went down with the ship. Some sources state that Smith quietly wandered off to the bridge, while others had Smith actively helping with the radio room, morse lamp and distress rockets.
There is a statue to his legacy in Beacon Park, Lichfield, England.
Skitlandia, however, tells a different story. Apparently, J. Bruce Ismay wasn't the only man to escape the disaster dressed as a woman.....
