April, 1912 "RMS Titanic"

[Depicted in Young Indiana Jones and the Titanic Adventure, the 9th novel published by Random House, written by author Les Martin and released in 1993]

  • Sometime in 1912, Indiana had wrote to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes novels that Indiana had much admiration for. Upon hearing back from Conan Doyle, Indiana went to England (in the company of Miss Seymour) to meet him in person.

  • Indiana and Conan Doyle then made their acquaintances over a cup of English tea, which then led to an encounter with a fortune teller, who forewarned Indiana that he would soon be involved in a catastrophe at sea.

  • Indiana was skeptical of his fortune, however, and the very next day boarded the RMS Titanic without any trepidation.

  • Indiana then boarded the RMS Titanic on April 10th, 1912, which sailed from Southhampton, England to Cherboug, France to Queenstown, Ireland before it’s expected arrival in New York City - until it met its unfortunate fate with an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean in the late hours of April 14th.

  • More than 1,517 lives were lost that evening, yet thanks to a “save the women and children” protocol, Indiana and Miss Seymour were spared.


  • The story of the Titanic is one of the most historic moments of the 20th century, and due to the nature of the tragedy and safety modifications implemented afterwards, this particular moment will likely be remembered throughout history.
