Guilty: the iceberg that sunk the Titanic

A picture that purports to show the iceberg that sunk the Titanic has emerged after spending nearly a century hanging on a boardroom wall.

The hand-written eye-witness account was by the chief steward of an ocean liner that passed by the disaster site hours later.

The German steward, named only as M. Linoenewald, described seeing red paint “plainly visible” on a large iceberg that appeared to have been made by the “scraping of a vessel” on it.
