Workman Clark Shipyard
This presentation marks the 100th anniversary of the Workman Clark war memorial which is now located at the Pumphouse in the Titanic Quarter.
The presentation will provide a wide-ranging account of the involvement of the Workman Clark shipyard and its employees in the First World War. The presentation will include biographies of men named on the memorial along with details on men from the shipyard who served and survived. The presentation will also cover details of the firm's contribution to the war effort in terms of shipbuilding, its financial support for the relatives of the men serving overseas and financial support for war fund appeals.
Nigel is currently working on a book, along with Maureen McKinney (Belfast Titanic Society) and Brian Mooney (County Antrim Yacht Club), about Workman Clark and its part in the Great War (both at home and overseas).
