A lifeboat nameplate removed from lifeboat #2. This came from the collection of James W. Barker who was able to retrieve this nameplate, a drinking cup and two oarlocks from lifeboat #2.
Lifeboat #2 was launched at 1:45 am April 15th. It was the nineth lifeboat launched and the first to be picked up by the Carpathia at 4:10 am. There were a total of 18 people on the boat: 14 passengers (only one was male) and four crew.
