What first occured on the Titanic? and was it a myth?
The Titanic, just in case you have never paid any attention to history or watched the movie, was at the time the largest ship on the seas and traveled from the UK to the US. It was famously said to be ‘unsinkable’ , though the shipbuilders Harland and Wolff insist that they never advertised it that way, claiming instead that the ‘unsinkable’ myth was from an articles in the Irish News and the Shipbuilder magazine which only got bigger after the sinking.
It is widely reported that the Titanic was the first ship to use the SOS signal . Quite whether this is true or not is another matter. We at goodsitebadsite.com actually like to investigate these facts first, since it is repeated on so many sites. It would appear that the first use of the international ‘S.O.S’ signal was either from Cunard liner Slavonia on June 10, 1909, or the Modern Electrics (1910), or the steamer SS Arapahoe on August 11, 1909. The Titanic sunk 15 Aprial 1912 nearly 3 years later!
