Ss mount temple

Assisting the RMS TitanicEdit

The SS Mount Temple was one of the ships that responded to the RMS Titanic's distress signals on 14 April 1912. The ship arrived at the Titanic's reported position at roughly 4:10 AM local time next day. Due to receiving incorrect coordinates, she was separated from the scene of the wreck by an iceberg and was unable to assist in rescue operations. That iceberg might have been the same iceberg that sank the Titanic on the night of 14 April 1912.

There has been speculation that the Mount Temple, and not the SS Californian may have been the so-called mystery ship which, although sighted at a distance of five to ten miles[1][2] from the Titanic, ignored her distress rockets.
