Hi All, My name is Billy and I was in the Merchant Navy for a few years in the early 70's.
Memory is getting a bit vauge, but one of the ships I served on was the "British Respect".
Can anyone tell me how or where I can get some more info on the ship and maybe some of the crew that have been on her?

Welcome aboard, Billy.
Plenty of BP lads in the crew so you should get a response soon.
Find your way around the ship and have a good trip.

Welcome from Lancashire.
I hope you will enjoy the site.

You will find photos of two ships called British Respect in The Allen Collection (see link below).
