Hi All,
this is my first post, hopefuly not the last.
My first ship was the ''British Resource'', I joined her in Newcastle in 1955 as junior engineer, the chief was ''Jimmy Dick'' from Glasgow and the Captain was ''S.Bruce'', I paid off on 23rd December at Falmouth where we were for Drydock, I sailed on another five after that, all B.P. and Clyde tankers.

On behalf of the 'SN Moderating Team', welcome aboard Gordon.

I see you have been a member for a while, so now that you have taken the plunge will hopefully post more (Thumb)

Hi Gordonian,

Welcome to Shipsnostalgia, I'm sure there are many more of us in the BP Shipping section waiting to hear more.

I'll send you a Shipsnostalgia email
