I draw your attention to 'Page 24'

Either the photo is wrong, or the information that the Investigators have been given is incorrect!

wee eddie - my attention has been drawn to page 24....Is it a 'spot the difference' competition?

Who compiled this report?

Distances are given in miles, but depths in metres...

There's already been at least one television documentary on this disaster. I wonder what information was gained from those documentaries, and might have been used in this or other similar investigation reports?.

Nautical miles is the standard measurement of distance at sea.

Depths were in fathoms when Capt. Nemo was around...

...a league was also a measure of depth/distance as in 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
