Charles William Wing

The ranks, ships and dates 'from' and 'to' are taken from a letter, dated 30th September 1931, certifying Mr. Wing's service from the Company, signed by one of the joint manager, Mr. R.F. Gibb, IN 1932 Mr. Gibb was made Chairman of the Company.   The countersignature is that of Mr. Robinson, Superintendent Engineer.

This certificate was probably required by Mr. Wing to prove his watch keeping time in order to qualify for his Second Engineers examination, thus stating that in this time Mr. Wing kept  watch for eight hours out of twenty-four on the main engines and/or the boilers.  

I am grateful to Mark Vickers for sending me a copy of this certificate. (OGK)
