Was it a prerequisite to be called Steve to get an engineering cadetship with BP in the 70s? :D :D :D

Right, Last night must have been a bad night for me , better this morning.

Remember I'm 8 hours behind UK time.

I do know of all 5 but I thought they were 1970 or 1971 intake.

SJ Dando sailed, Tay, Border Falcon and Resolution to J/E-74/77
SI Blake sailed, Statesman,Shoush, Tay and Centaur to J/E-74/78
SL Constable sailed, Tay (with Dando), Minab -J/E 74/77
SP Payne sailed,Architect E/C
M Whitecross sailed, Architect E/C (with Payne)

If you want more precise details email me. I have a large list of 1970,71 and 72's E/C's, and have been in touch with about 35
I also never knew BP used Cardiff as a College, most in that area were at Swansea Tech
