Marconi Operators

1912 illustration of Titanic's heroic Marconi (wireless) operators.

Titanic’s Marconigram operators, Harold Bride and Jack Phillips, sent out a flurry of messages between 12.15 and 2.17 am, when Titanic's signals abruptly ended. 

Among those ships that received the messages was Titanic’s sister ship, Olympic, under Captain Haddock.   The contents of these messages capture the desperate plight of all those on board.
