What did you do before BP and what after

I left school in Glasgow and then did my time as a BP engineering apprentice. Sailed on 5 ships then left and joined Honeywell Computers. Trained as a systems test engineer and later joined field service fixing mainframe systems across Europe. Transferred to Aberdeen then Toronto Canada to look after Bell Canada's mainframe complex. When Honeywell (Honeywell Bull) closed its doors became management in various IT companies serving time in Bermuda and Texas before retiring, I left BP at the right time although have many fond memories.
