This collection includes records of individuals who were employed at Rosyth Dockyard located in Fife, Scotland. Details are also included of places and dates of employment at other dockyards around the country, which explains why dates found within the collection precede the construction of Rosyth Dockyard in 1909. It was built at the orders of the Royal Navy, looking to strengthen their presence along the Eastern seaboard at a time when Britain was engaged in a naval arms race with Germany.
The Rosyth Dockyard Employee Books can be found in Dunfermline Carnegie and Galleries.
