New Member Intro and Request ...

Good day,

Introducing myself, joined BPS in '71 as a deck cadet, presently in role as Chief Marine Incident Investigator in "the office". New team, new role, new job - we set out to deliver a no blame independent investigation into the root causes of incidents etc. Perhaps more on that later ...

Now, to my request. I am after good quality copies of photo's of "British Hussar" and "British Dragoon", the later without another vessel alongside during lightering. They are for special presentations to current sea staff.

Can anybody help?

Many thanks.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Bob.
I'm sure one of our numerous BP crew members will be able to help.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the trip.

Hi Bob

I was a Deck Cadet from 1970-1974 .. then 3/0 until I left in 1977.

Hope you get what you are looking for....this is a great site and if someone can't help you on here...then there's no hope!!

Welcome to the site Bob.
Regret that I cannot help with hard copy photos of either vessel. There are a couple of the Hussar in the gallery but I would not want to print them off. If you're good with Photoshop then maybe you can do something with this one which is the better quality of the ones in the gallery:
Do you not have access to BP's archives (which I believe are held at the University of Warwick)?
Kind regards,

Hello Bob,
I have a super photo of the Hussar which I could email to you, it's also in the site gallery but this one has been scanned at high res from a certain shipping magazine. My daughter who is a graphic designer helped me to remove the gutter shadow, as the photo appeared over two pages, and the text over the water.
Th Hussar was my first ship as cadet in 1969, and the one in which I learned how to chip, paint,tank dive and cement wash fresh water tanks!!

Have you tried I think sky photos of Kent. They may help. They took many a marine photo.
