Hi there first of all this is a great site. I am ex B P from back in 1981 and am desperately trying to get a copy or an original of the B P news from 1980 or early 81. If anyone can help I would be very grateful. I sailed on the British Patience the Reliance and the Tay anybody sail on any of them it would be great to hear from you. I can be contacted by PM Thanks Nigel

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshre, Nigel.
Plenty of BP among our crew.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the trip.

Hi kraftwerke,

That is one old thread.

I'm an ex 1955 BP Engineering Apprentice and have been running a BP website for last 15+ years. I collect BP memorabilia and have many copies of Fleet News including all of 1980/81, but always on the lookout for more , especially 1966/69

I provided Nigel with the info he wanted back in 2008 .

Precisely what copies do you still have ? you can send me an SN PM.

Kraftwerke,

As far as Fleet News I have all 1983. For 1984 I am missing June, July, September and October.

Ships Movements (Crew lists) are included in last 2 pages each month's Fleet News but dated the previous month (ie Feb's Crew list is in March's Fleet News). Over the years I have been given some separate copies of just Crew lists and therefore have all 1983/84 except December 1984

December 1984 Ships Movements (Crew lists) would have been in Jan 1985 FN, for some reason Jan/Feb 1985 FN were one combined issue but only Crew lists were listed for Jan 15th 1985.

So the Crew list for Dec 1984 as far as I know was never issued.

Do you have the 4 Missing Fleet News, are you willing to donate them to me?

Regards,
Graham
