Am I right in thinking / remembering .. that the BP group call-sign for all ships in the fleet was:

Golf
Xray
Whiskey
Bravo

I seem to remember calling this out as a young cadet via VHF channel 16 when slow steaming round the Cape from Gulf to Rotterdam and back a few times, hoping for a chat with someone to pass the time!!

Derek, by my recollection the collective call-sign was GTZX

I'll drink to GTZX, Geoff. GXWB was probably your vessel's own call-sign, Derek.

I agree GTZX was the collective.(Smoke)

OOOPs......

Thanks guys, you are all, of course, correct!

GXWB was the call-sign of the Nordic Breeze, the vessel I was adding to my scrapbook pages when I made the enquiry here.
My brain is becoming fuddled you see! :D

GTZX it was .. is it still I wonder?
