Belfast Branch

Background: In 1936, with the need for further expansion, Shorts joined Harland & Wolff to form a new company, Short & Harland, sited in Belfast, Northern Ireland. By November 1938, the Belfast interest in aviation had grown sufficiently for a number of enthusiasts to form the RAeS Belfast Branch. The inaugural lecture was given by Sir Arthur Gouge, Chief Designer and General Manager of Short Brothers.
