Titanic Marconi telegraph Sinking want immediate assistance [COPY]

  This is a copy for Marconi international marine communication telegraph 41   46 N   50   14   W sent by Phillips to any ship in their vicinity sinking want immediate assistance   On this cold April night in 1912, the Marconi station onboard the "MGY" vessel (the radio callsign of the Titanic) was operated by two wireless operators, 25 year old John George Phillips - better known as "Jack" or "Sparks", and 22 year old Harold Bride as the Deputy or Assistant Radio Operator. They were both employees of the Marconi Telegraph Company. Jack Phillips could tap out 39 words per minute, ditto that for Harold Thomas Cottam ("Carpathia's" wireless operator), and Harold Bride's could manage 26 words per minute.    They were passing a routine traffic by 11.45 PM when Captain Smith came in informing Phillips and Bride that the ship had hit an iceberg, and to prepare a distress call.    At 12:15 AM the captain returned at the radio room and told the operators to send the message. Phillips sent it using his spark gap transmitter : "CQD Titanic 41.46 N 50.24 W" when Bride interrupted him : " Send S.O.S. !  It's the new call and it may be your last chance to send it". But faithful to Marconi's rules, Phillips continue sending CQD.    At the same time, ship "La Provence" received the distress message asking for assistance, the ship "Mount temple", MLQ, also heard the CQD and asked "Titanic" to give again her position. Drowned in the noise of the steam, Philips and Bride checked the ship position. "Cape Race", MCE, heard "Titanic" sending back her new coordinates : "41.44 N 50.24 W". Then ship "Ypiranga" heard "Titanic" calling CQD for about 10 minutes without establish any contact.   The situation worsening, at 12:25 AM Phillips sent to any ship in their vicinity a new message. The Cunard Liner "Carpathia", MPA, picked up the CQD saying : "Come at once. We have struck a berg . It's a CQD OM. Position 41.46 N 50.14 W". Sinking want immediate assistance "Cape Race" called "Titanic" but received no reply.   "Titanic" sent a new call : "MGY CQD, here correct position 41.46 N. 50.14 W. Require immediate assistance. We have collision with iceberg. Sinking. Can hear nothing for noise of steam". Titanic called so during about 15 to 20 minutes to "Ypiranga".  "...MGY CQD SOS SOS CQD CQD DE MGY WE ARE SINKING FAST PASSENGERS KEIN...".   Meanwhile, at 12:30 AM "Mount Temple" heard "Titanic" still calling CQD. His Captain "reversed ship". She was about 90 km (50 miles) off "Titanic". After a lot of misunderstanding between ships, at 12:32 AM "Carpathia" answered to "Titanic": "Putting about and heading for you
