Competition result!

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition to win Titanic Remembered 1912-2012, and to Carlton Books for generously providing the prize. The correct answers were:
  1. There were 13 scullions in the victualling crew. (There were also 2 separately assigned to the first-class à la carte restaurant.) Only five would survive the disaster; the names and fates of all of them are listed here
  2. The campaigning journalist was W T Stead, best known for his expos√© of child prostitution in London, The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon.
The names of all correct entrants were submitted to a random name selector, which picked out ... Silver Tiger. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Silver Tiger. I enjoyed researching the answers to the competition and entering the competition even if I didn't win.
