Luard, "One of the finest traditional boatbuilders in the world", left elementary school at the age of 14 just after the outbreak of the First World War to commence his apprenticeship at a wage of 3/- a week. Fishing boats were just beginning to have auxiliary engines fitted and he took an active part in subsequent alterations to luggers to accommodate these engines.
