My Grandfather

I am trying to find out some details of my Grandfather. Unfortunately my father is no longer alive to help me.

He was probaly born around 1900 or slightly earlier. Worked for BP and retired around 1961.

He was Robert Nicholson (maybe called Bob)

My understanding is that he was a Chief Engineer for BP and then worked ashore either in Sunderland or Tyneside. He was from Sunderland

I have some stuff from the 1953 fleet review indicating he may have been on the British Sailor at that time.

Understanding the timescales I am hoping someone remembers him from their earlier days with BP in his latter days or someone has old records with a record of his existence at BP.
