Reginald Robinson Lee (19 May 1870 – 6 August 1913) was a lookout stationed in the crow's nest of the RMS Titanic when the ship collided with an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. on 14 April 1912.

BiographyEdit

Born in Benson, England, Lee joined the Titanic's crew on 6 April 1912, having been transferred from its sister ship, RMS Olympic.[1] On 14 April, Lee joined lookout Frederick Fleet in the crow's nest beginning at 10 p.m. The binoculars the two were supposed to use were not on board, forcing the lookouts to use their own eyesight.[1] Lee was ordered to man lifeboat No. 13, which was launched from the starboard side of Titanic at 1:30 a.m. As a result, Lee survived the sinking, as did Fleet.

Lee testified before the Board of Trade Inquiry into the disaster, but died shortly thereafter from complications from pneumonia, in Kenilworth, on 6 August 1913.
