Just browsing on Picasa and stumbled on a wonderfull album by a Sparky called Dennis .. British Freedom up the Baltic and British Robin .. great photo of him in the radio room ... but go look and let me know who he is and what you all think of his album.....

The album on BP tankers is great but so are all his other nostalgic photos of life in the UK 1960's and the decades before.

I'd love him to post them on SN......(K)

Have asked Graham Wallace who dennis might be from his collection of personel on BP Tankers ... 1966 British Freedom, Renown,Robin .....
The interior shots on the Robin are very nostalgic and a record of how we were in those super days, trips and those wonderfull "Birdy Boats".

The other photos in his other albums record how things were in the 50's and 60's ... mini's in all sense of the word ....

(Hippy)

Barnsey, I have just had a look and he has some good photos there.

It looks like his full name is Denis Campbell and he was on the British prudence in 1965

Haven't some of the photographs on Denis's Picasa site already been loaded on to SN?

Only one's that are scanned from magazines and publications.
A sparkie posting those radio room pictures on here would be remembered.
I'm surprised by the lack of photos on here featuring the ships he shows in his gallery.
Unfortunately there are people out there who have never heard of SN. (Sad)

Hi Barnsey, any chance of a link to site as I don't know where to start looking for it. Cheers. Ken.

Around about 10.00 today I posted the information from Denis's Pilot Licence (together with a crack about we Sparkies always getting the info first). For some reason it has not 'stuck' on the thread, neither has the preceding post #3 from Barnsey, saying he would like to know who Denis was. Odd.

Denis's Picasa entry can be viewed at

Ah! Velly confusing, Master.

Thanks for that Kris, thought my pc was playing up (or my mental picoprocesser - that's far less capable than a microprocessor).

Yes he is Dennis Campbell ex BP Sparks from 1964/69 sailed on 10 BP tankers then moved on to Cable & Wireless vessels out of Victoria BC as Sparks and ROV pilot.

Nostalgic pictures. Wish I knew how to post some of my pics onto the site !
I particularly liked the picture of "Somwhere in the North Sea" where a small ship is passing on a reciprocal couse close-to. I think these separation lanes, whilst helping to avpoid collisions have mad it much less interesting than when ships passed close and you could almost wave at them !

I see Dennis has joined the SN forum in the Hello section, "Spaarks".

Sailed with Dennis many times in C&W, he was Chief Submersible Engineer before he was made redundant / took early retirement. His latest exploits (well a few years ago) can be found on the Irish R/O’s site http://www.btinternet.com/~highestpub/AMERES.HTM
