This photograph was long believed to show Captain Smith and some officers from RMS Titanic.
However, it actually shows Captain Smith and 8 of his officers from when he captained RMS Olympic. In order of left to right:
- Standing: Purser Hugh McElroy, Third Officer Henry O. Cater, Second Officer R. Hume, Fourth Officer David W. Alexander, Sixth Officer Harold H. Holehouse.
- Seated: Fifth Officer A. Tulloch, Chief Officer Joseph Evans, Captain Edward Smith and First Officer William Murdoch.
Is there a similar photograph for Captain Smith and his officers for RMS Titanic?
