Hi John
Sorry I have only just picked up your post on here while looking again at this thread.
From memory were you 3/E.
Can remember leaving at the sametime as George Simpson and transferring to BP PET Dev on the platforms, Delta in my case and George to the Charlie.
Can remember young Tony Sullivan who obviously did very well for him self, must have been the good handover training I gave him!
Hope your keeping well as I am, now long retired and living in Bideford, North Devon.
All the best
Dave

Dave,

We sailed together on the Iolair, I was the first FSO on that pile of crap, "white knuckles" Nichols was my back to back. I first joined her in Brest and stuck it for 2 years.

I was the other galley boy on the Kiwi when you served. I remember it took ages to get promoted to A/S as they couldn't get replacements, or didn't want to ! I remember Harry Riggall, I have a photo of a few of us !

Hello to all,

My name is John Price and I sailed with BP tankers from 1961 until 1978. I would like to hear from any shipmates that are still around. I finished up as a Fleet manager for a German Company based in Limassol, Cyprus and my wife and I lived there for 8 years. Well retired now and living in the North East of England.

Claretman, There are official BP photo's of Br Patience, Br Loyalty & Br Trent in my photo gallery. I've posted them on here, but they might have lost some quality. Perhaps they could be of some use? I don't know what the quality would be like for framing though. BPs "Photo & Information Department" were the people who supplied me with the originals. Other BP Tankers that I was on in my Photo Gallery as well, for those that are interested.
