'Massey's Cossacks' guarding the Athenic

'Massey's Cossacks' guarding the <em>Athenic</em>

‘Massey’s Cossacks’, mounted special constables, guard strike-breakers working Shaw Savill & Albion’s Home boat Athenic in 1913. The great waterfront strike that year left a legacy of bitterness that lingered during the war years. While most maritime workers supported the war effort, serving in the merchant marine or volunteering for military service, many remained critical of the Reform government and its war policies.
