This Information is derived from Google Books

Alfred Lapsley was a 23 year old from Toronto, Ontario.  His work station was situated on the opposite side of the ship to Harold (Bud) Robertsons.  "The explosion jammed the door of my shop, but lifted the deck open right overhead.  I was below the waterline, and in a moment was in a mass of water and oil.  I managed to climb up and out, and came back over what had been the bottom of the ship... I was so coverd with oil my own mother wouldn't have known me."
