    Default Marine Engineer

    A question, a Marine Engineer in the 1901, would he be working on board a ship or on the dock/dry dock or both?
    A great uncle was a Mechanical Engineer, Fitter and Marine Engineer.

    Karen to be a ships engineer he would have at that time have served an apprenticeship in engineering which involved reciprocating steam engines.
    In the early 1900's most motive power was supplied by steam engines, factories, railway locomotives and ships.
    To have served a marine apprenticeship was a big advantage but coming from other sources you would be required to have to serve longer sea time
    to sit examinations of competency for 2nd Eng. and Chief Eng.
