Hi Len,

I was a 1955 BP Engineering Apprentice at Acton Tech. I'm, sorry to tell you Roy Stopher died 2002. AD Tosh was a 1956 BP EA at Hendon, but did not know he had died
I also know DL Morgan. John L Whiting is still around.
I'll send you a shipsnostalgia Email .

Obviously, sorry to hear of Roy. He was/or had been a non-exclusive surveyor for DnV . Tosher had been Senior Ship and Engine Surveyor for Lloyds . Dai obtained his Extras, MIMechE and a Business Management degree before a brief sojourn with SS&A and the MOT and subsequently became the Business Manager for "The Institute" Have replied to your e-mail with other stuff!!

Sailed with Colin Busby in CNCo, a gentleman and one of the finest Chief Engineers I have ever met.
