1918 to 1939

Henry Robb shipbuilders and engineers built many fine ships from there humble start in 1918 up to the start of World War II in 1939

The first 16 yard numbers were allocated to vessels built on what was in effect the dock side.

Their first building orders were in fact for barges and pontoon's, and continuing on the tradition of a shipyard the orders were all allocated a "Ship Number"

I have only shown the actual ships that were built in the yard on the following pages.

When you click on the name of the ship it will take you to the page with all the ships details.

On each ships page will be a history button, you will find all the known details of the ship here.

Also you will find on each ships page the stories from the men and women who sailed on the ships.

Ships built from 1918 to 1939

(If the yard number is not shown then it means that the number was allocated to something other than a ship, a barge or pontoon for example.)

You will find a full list of allocated yard numbers at the blog.
