He joined the Titanic's crew on 6 April 1912, having been transferred from its sister ship, RMS Olympic. On 14 April, Lee joined lookout Frederick Fleet in the crow's nest beginning at 10 p.m. The binoculars the two men should have used were unavailable, as the keys to the case in which they were locked were not on board, forcing the lookouts to rely on their eyesight.
When the Titanic began to founder, Lee was ordered to man lifeboat No. 13, which was launched from the ship's starboard side at 1:30 a.m. As a result, Lee survived the sinking, as did Fleet.
