Notes for George Ernest KNIBBS:

Also known as: George Ernest Harrison-Knibbs

I suspect it was this George E Knibbs we see on 9th April, 1931 aboard the ship Rema del Pacifico, bound from Liverpool to Valparaiso, Chile. He had ipted to land at Bermuda. He was accompanied by 48 other tradesmen of similar ages, all contracted by the Reghent Construction Company, 43 Great Marlborough Street, London, so I anticipate they were all contracted to work on a major contruction in Bermuda.

George was listed as aged 20, and a Plumbers Mate by trade.

On August 28th, 1931, we see him leaving Bermuida on the ship SS Veendam, presumabley on his way back to England.
