Greetings - ex BP Eng Cadet 1980 intake

28th October 2008, 15:15

I had a relatively short seagoing career starting as an Engineer Cadet in 1980 at South Shields, finishing up at Glasgow Nautical College.
I sailed on four of the companys ships; Trident, Avon, Fidelity and Tweed.

I took a lot of photos during that time, but they all left with my first wife.......
I'd be interested if there were anyone out there with photos from the same trips.

Welcome aboard, Paul.
Quite a few BP lads in the crew so find your way around the ship, join in and enjoy the trip.
