Two Marconi operators photographed aboard the "Adriatic" sometime before the "Titanic" voyage. The man on the left is Jack Phillips, the heroic sender of the distress signals who stuck to his post and went down with the Titanic.
Joseph Groves Boxhall was the Fourth Officer. When Titanic collided with an iceberg, Boxhall was off duty near the Officers' Quarters. Hearing the lookout bell, he headed to the bridge, arriving just after the impact. Capt. Smith, ordered Boxhall to perform an inspection of the forward part of the ship. Boxhall calculated Titanic's position for distress signals. He sighted the masthead lights of a nearby vessel (the Californian) & attempted in vain to signal by Morse lamp & distress flares.
