This looks lika great site.
Joined BP(British Tanker Company) in Jan 1951 as cadet.
Had a great apprenticeship although the voyages were a little on the long side , average nine and a half months.
Moved on from there and ended up on the Australian Coast for the remainder of my working life.
Been retired for ten years so the memories are getting a bit dim
Can no onger remember names but always remember faces ang good crew mates
Hope to contrbute in the near future
Goodday to all

A warm welcome to SN from the Isle of Anglesey.
There is every chance that you will meet old shipmates on this site so, have a good look round and join in the banter as much as possible.
Beware, it is addictive! (Thumb)
