Went to his stateroom to rest after listening to Phillips' message.
Cyril Furmstone Evans (1892-1959) was the radio operator for the SS Californian in 1912.
Biography[edit | edit source]
On April 14, 1912, he sent a warning to Jack Phillips, the radio operator on the RMS Titanic about the ice on the Atlantic Ocean, but Phillips in disgust told him to "Keep out! Shut up! I'm working Cape Race. Poker business good. Al". Evans became annoyed by that message and recited it to the ship's third officer Charles Groves. After that, he shut off his system and turned in to his stateroom.
Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]
- Cyril Evans was portrayed by Adam Barker in James Cameron's Titanic, but his scenes were cut from the film, and he was therefore, uncredited. However, he appeared in the film's deleted scenes.
