Image ID:

World War II Religion. Lunchtime prayer in the shipyard. So that there would be no interference with production the National Prayer Service in a N. East Shipyard was held during the lunchtime break. Hundreds of men stood with their heads bowed, following the Bishop of Durham, Dr. Alwyn. Williams as he said the Lord's Prayer. The short simple service lasted ten minutes, and as the whistle blow to recommence work, once again the stillness was broken by the hammering of rivets, and the clanging of steel plates, which will go down to the sea in ships to fight for freedom....September 1942 P011612
