Illustration from the Great War published in 1918 Showing how busy the shipyards were replacing ships sunk by the enemy, or altering boats to make them suitable for helping in the war effort. Many skilled tradesmen were exempt from conscription because of the need for new ships for the Navy to replace those sunk or altered shipping for trade & passenger craft.
