Titanic Crew Member – Herbert Pitman

My name is Eardley Bryan. My ex-wife’s great uncle was Herbert Pitman, Third Officer on the Titanic. He was approached by the author of the book “A Night to Remember” and told him that he was not interested in helping and later wrote to my late mother-in-law, his niece, “It is a lot of rubbish”. He is buried in the churchyard in small Somerset village. I have typed several of his war-time letters and they make interesting reading, but with no Titanic references, apart from that one remark about the book. I think that he felt that he did not want to have to go through it again, even though he did read the serialization of the book in the National press. Eardley Bryan
