    Hi, my father was employed by Harland & Wolf’s as an engineers helper, he worked in the graving dock occasionally and nearly lost his head when a hawser snapped. I also have worked on ship repairs in the dock, I was a ship’s joiner, not sure which yard was doing the repairs, but worked for Blythswood, Barclay Curle, Fairfield & John Browns
