His route to the Gallipoli campaign took him from Korumburra, a small country town in Victoria, Australia, to the Broadmeadows training camp and then on to Egypt, Greece and then to the Dardenelles.

The seasoned 58-year-old captain believed in the abilities of the Lusitania to outrun any submarine, technology that was still considered relatively primitive at the time. As historian Erik Larson writes in Dead Wake, Turner’s New York managers at Cunard, the company that owned the boat, even issued an official statement reassuring the public.
“The truth is that the Lusitania is the safest boat on the sea. Unfortunately, this confidence was premature.
