Hello again Andrew,

Professor WH Bragg, Physics Professor at Leeds University at the time, and an Adelaide (South Australia) is not listed here, but was also on the maiden voyage and gave evidence at the enquiry. See articles such as that in the Register (Adelaide) 20 January 1911, p. 5 where he says he believed her metacentre was below her centre of gravity.
