My late father, Jack Shaw [1912-1993] served his time as a ship's fitter in Belfast with Workman & Clarke [1932 P/L] He worked on the original, purpose built whaling vessels, Cosmos I and Cosmos II. When Workman & Clarke merged with Harland and Wolff in 1932 young Jack went with them. Served during WWII on merchant ships during the Atlantic Convoy period. We migrated to Brisbane Australia in 1951 and dad found work with a local ship builder at Kangaroo Point Brisbane. Balfor.
