Certainly was, he worked for Shorts he was a mechanic to trade and played in goal for the hockey team, there was a few Canadians in the hockey team. He mentioned assembling planes in Belfast near to the Sydenham by pass, I take it that must be near where George Best airport is now. There was always a mention about the Americans and how he was never short of petrol for his motorbike (war rationing) Not much technical data I'm afraid just an old boys fond memories. Many years ago I flew out to the British Virgin islands in a Belfast made by shorts, one comfortable military plane,  if I remember correctly the fly boys (R.A.F)  called it the slug. After that it was the Hercules c130 for us.

Hi Alan
Have noted from a very old posting, dating back to 2007, that you were enquiring about the Labouring Boys pub in Isleworth, London.
Might be able to help. What is your interest?

My mother's first job was in the Kings's Hall, working for Shorts and Harland. That would have been about 1941, so may be too early for you.  Think she wasn't there very long before she got a job at Stormont.  Her name was Maureen Sheils at that time.
