Harland and Wolff - Shipbuilding and Engineering Works

With a strong industrial base, Harland and Wolff was selected for the manufacture of war material that ranged from tanks to hand grenades and bullets. Tanks were built by Harland and Wolff between August 1939 and May 1943. At a time when there was an urgent demand for tanks the firm built about 550 Matildas, Churchills and Centaurs.
