Harland and Wolff - Shipbuilding and Engineering Works

"For the sake of auld lang syne" seems to be the sentiment being expressed in the picture - and that's not surprising, since the three men receiving retirement gifts in the photograph worked side by side in the Plumbers Shop for most of their careers. Bob Lynn, Bob Hayes and Jimmy Wright retired on November 13th and were presented with their work-mates farewell gifts by Senior Foreman Plumber Jimmy Quigley. Bob Lynn and Bob Hayes, both of whom had given 39 years service to the firm, received cassette-radios, while Jimmy Wright, whose service spanned 45 years, received a clock. All three men were given watches for their wives.
