Product Description

About the Author

David Haisman is the youngest son of Edith Haisman and has spent 30 years of his working life at sea. During that time he has served on the world's largest liners namely the Queen's Elizabeth and Mary. Whilst serving with Cunard White Star line as it was then called, his duties included those of lookout man, going over the same course and experiencing the same weather conditions as those in Titanic's day. His experience gives his story greater credibility on the subject than many other authors on the subject.

Format: Hardcover
Many of you will know the story of Edith Haisman (nee Brown) but, if not, this lady was the oldest survivor of the Titanic disaster who, aged 15 at the time of the disaster, had vivid memories of the events that took place on the 14th/15th April 1912. Her son, David Haisman, has written this book based on his mother's account of her life and experiences, as told to her children over her lifetime. It is a wonderful read and David should be very proud of his book.

I have the hardback version, which runs to 143 pages. The book is attractively bound with a blue dust jacket. The font is a good size for reading and the binding and print quality is excellent. Don't expect lots of pictures however; there are a few but it is mostly text. Now then, on to the content...

The first two chapters, "Preface" and "Lookout Procedures" are, in my opinion, worth the book's price on their own. David Haisman has spent 30 years at sea in the British merchant marine and he uses these chapters to provide the reader with his insights and knowledge regarding certain aspects of the Titanic disaster. Within the "Preface", he explains the pressure that Titanic's seamen were under during the abandon ship procedure. Most of the crew had little knowledge of seamanship and therefore the challenges of launching the lifeboats from complex Welwyn davits fell to a relatively small number of men. After reading this section, I had much more respect for what Titanic's seamen managed to achieve that night, in extremely difficult circumstances. Similarly, the "Lookout Procedures" chapter, although brief, similarly enlightens the reader as to what life was like for a lookout posted in a crow's nest for two hours in sub-zero temperatures.
