Secret archives of the Freemasons shows how many were involved in the investigation into the sinking of the Titanic
On the investigation into the sinking of the Titanic might have influenced the Freemasons, new evidence suggests.
The secret archives containing the names of two million freemasons was first published on the website Ancestry, and reveals how prepared Freemasons were involved in the controversial British investigation into the greatest catastrophe of that time.
Archive confirms that not only are the judge who oversaw the British Committee of the disaster and the main investigators, than those who avoid censorship – were all Masons.
While the US Senate investigation revealed that the culprit was the British Board of Trade due to “lax regulation that allowed the board to be such a small number of rescue ships,” the British investigation, led by Lord Mersey was not accused Committee.
But Lord Mesey, real name John Charles Bigham, was, as now learned mason who joined the London Lodge in 1881.
They belonged to the chairman of the board, Sydney Buxton, who became a member of the same year in Limehouse, east London.
The names of at least two of the five members of the experts who participated in the investigation, are also in the Masonic archives; namely Harvard professor John Biles, a specialist in naval architecture and Edward Chaston, senior engineer.
Meanwhile, it was learned that the Lord Pirrie, who was director of Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, where the Titanic was built, and one of the directors of the company that was at the head of the White Star (companies whose possession was the Titanic), also were Masons.
Expert Titanic, Nic Compton, author of Titanic on Trial ‘, stated: “The investigation of the Titanic in the UK is designated as” corrected “because of it thrown out most involved. Only three passengers were examined, with the all belonged to the first class.
Captain Smith was off and only because the majority of ships in those days usually raced through the ice without major consequences.
The only person with both investigations rushed in full gear was the captain of the ship California which was located at a distance of 13 kilometers and whose crew watched when Titanic fired flares, but you did not do anything until it was too late. ”
Compton claims that the British more focused on populist issues, such as whether to receive rescue boats wealthy travelers who offered them a bribe and why they did not return by the people who were swimming around the ship.
Otherwise, a passenger ship that sank to the bottom of the Atlantic in the early morning of April 15, 1912, remains one of the biggest maritime disaster which killed more than 1,500 and 700 people survived.
British investigation has led trade committee which gave the approval of the board, and for which many believed they did not want to be found guilty, because it is among those responsible was he himself and the White Star. The investigation concluded that Captain Smith did what any other good man did that was in his place, the Telegraph reported.
No link with Masons sheds new light on the whole investigation, but also indicates the extent to which the Masons were involved in British high society, as well as to how prepared you might manage it.
