Bring Your Own Clothes

LISTEN: Bruce Grozier, former plater, talks about the clothing policy

There were no uniforms or special overalls for the shipyard workers.  Here is an image of two carpenters, at work in their own clothing!  A vast number of trades were involved in building these ships, including riveters, welders, caulkers, platers, blacksmiths, burners, as well as the engineers, draughtsmen, tracers, and other office clerks needed for producing the designs & technical drawings.
