Boxhall said he was walking forward toward the bridge when 1
icit the shock of the impact with some unknown object. It was n
sufficient to check his walk, tnd Ik continued to the bridge, where 1
found the first officer, who had the watch; the captain and the six
officer. Immediately preceding the impact he heard the lookout c?
"three bells" and rst Officer Murdock give the order "Ha:
a-starboard." Then came the shock, and as he reached the bridge 1
heard the first office! telling the captain he thought they had hit

boarded tire helm and rail the engines full speed astern, but it was V
late and we hit it. I intended to port round it. but we struck. Tl
watertight doors are closed, sir."
The captain asked if Murdock had rung the warning bells, whic
Boxhall explained, were located at each bulkhead, and Murdock sa
he had. The captain and the first, fourth and sixth officers then wei
to the starboard end of the bridge and, looking back, saw what th<
believed was an iceberg.
Boxhall thought he saw something which he described as
