This Bahrain ship’s captain never read Conrad

Remember reading “Lord Jim” by Joseph Conrad in high school ?

“Lord Jim” (Joseph Conrad, Cedric Watts, Robert Hampson)
The captain of the Bahrain dhow which overturned in the Gulf killing 57 passengers somehow escaped (this has not been explained yet) and failed to meet the requirement that the captain go down with his ship….(Actually, I think the idea is you have to go down with the ship if other people are likely to do so)….no requirement for officers and gentlemen to go down with cargos of oil or frozen food…….
