The film features Lord Pirrie, Chairman of Belfast shipbuilders Harland & Wolff. Also, appearing is Clementine Churchill who was at the centre of one of the day’s most dramatic incidents. After lunch at a Belfast hotel, Churchill was getting into his car, ready to make his way to his next engagement. He was spotted by some shipyard workers who set upon the car and were intent on trying to tip it over when they noticed that Clementine Churchill was in the vehicle. Upon seeing her, the cry went up, ‘mind the wumman’. The shipyard workers then refrained from putting the car onto its roof.
