Fireman, SS Stanley Park
Fireman, SS Stanley Park

One of Stanley Park's firemen poses on the ship's deck in October 1945.

Also often called stokers, firemen were responsible for maintaining the fires in the ship's boilers. In "North Sands" type merchant ships like the Stanley Park, with three coal-fired boilers, this arduous task required constant watchfulness and physical effort to make sure the fires in the boilers were evenly spread and efficient, and to add coal and remove ashes.
