The three together. I'm not Geoff's older brother he started a year after me I'm sure he was a fitter.
Stephen and I where good mates in training centre. Kirky and I later worked in EMS he rode a bike so did I and still do. Haven't seen them in years but I left in about 84.

Sorry Number 26, for some unknown reason I cannot reply to your Personal Message. In answer to your question, I never worked at Harland & Wolff (much to my Fathers dismay) My Father however worked in H & W for 53 years before finally retiring in 1976. He loved every minute of his time there. Such great camaraderie and such wonderful men, he would often tell me. He started in the Yard as a humble messenger boy in 1923 and worked his way up to one of their Senior Design Draughtsman. He worked on all the great ships up to 1976. I however, attended many launches from 1947 to 1976. Great times and wonderful memories.  :)
he might have known my old man, Len Law, who was on the electrical board from the war until 1953 (possibly a bit before the war, too, before going to sea during the war

Served my time as fitter in yard 1962/67 4 months before the end of my apprenticeship I went to sea as engineer many years later became a supplier to H & W .remember ships used to be lined 2 & 3 abreast for repair before building dock was built

Me too. Served my apprenticeship 61 to 66. Joined the MN just after the 66 strike finished. Was at sea for over 30 years.
Always considered my apprenticeship stood me in good stead for the future.
