Just said hello and left details on the welcome forum.
My name is Dave Edworthy, was a Leckie on BP Tankers for the period above, would love to hear from any former shipmates from that period.

Hiya Dave,
James Megarrell here, did'nt we sail together on one of the "River Boats", I'll take a guess at the "Test". If I remember correctly the lads used to call you "Joe 90", after a character in a TV show.
Have a look at your discharge book.
Enjoy the site it's fascinating, lots of BP guys and other companies as well. Just like being back at sea. Hope to hear from you.
Regards JamesM

Hi Jim
From memory sailed with you on the Kiwi, Dart and perhaps another.
Were you from Mansfield?, married to Maggie?

I sailed on BP ships from 1977 - 1980 SS Patience, MV Liberty, MV Loyalty, SS Respect, SS Renown, MV Trent. I would love to get some photos of those ships for 'old times sake' but BP cannot help. Anyone any ideas where I can get good quality photos so I can print them out?
