Unlucky Number

On this day in 1966, J. Pedder, a fireman in the #3 boiler room aboard the RMS Queen Mary, was killed by a watertight door on D deck during a routine drill. Some have speculated that the young man, only 18 years old, was playing a game of "chicken" at the time and didn't get through the door quickly enough before it automatically slammed shut.

Several people have reported seeing a ghost resembling Mr. Pedder near door #13, where he died in Shaft Alley.
