Sally is the great, great granddaughter of the man in the title – Quartermaster Robert Hichens. With previously unpublished research she sets the record straight about the Titanic quartermaster who steered into an iceberg and then kept control of a lifeboat. Robert Hichens has gone down in history as the man who was given the famous order to steer the Titanic away from the iceberg and failed. A key witness at both U.S. and British Inquiries, he returned to a livelihood where fellow crewmen considered him jinxed. But Robert had a long career and was a hardworking, ambitious seaman. Sally seeks to reveal the true character of the man her family knew.
