BP Training courses

I found this photo when sorting out some old files. I think it was a BP safety course in Southampton around 1984. I only recognise Arthur Salmon, Peter Smith and me Alan Bristow

In similar vein does anyone remember the gazillions of short documentary films BP used to make on anything remotely connected with the oil industry? I thought they were very good.

Was on the Trident from 9/78 to 6/81 with bits of leave between trips, so we must have passed like ships in the night.
Phil Nevin C/E?

2G I was 3/E on the Trident 03/80 to 08/80 so unless you had a 5 month leave I guess we must have met, Phil Nevin was Chief when I joined.

Kev,

Resolution 3/1983, RO was PK Kiethy (Died on Trent 1993), C/E DM Richards

Resolution 4/1983, RO was RG Hall, C/E was DM Richards

Resolution 5/1983, RO was RG Hall, C/E A Salmon. And you.

So your Sparks was RG Hall.

Incidentally he had quite an extensive BP career. As far as I know Sportsman 3/1961 to at least Resolution to July 1983

Graham

I really enjoy seeing old photographs of past times, I 'know' so many of you but have never seen you face to face

I struggle with positions in the photos and names so suggest what we have done before on similar threads and numbered the positions of the heads and then can add names to numbers

So here goes, numbering heads from left to right;

Kneeling row,
1, Alan Bristow
2
3
4
5
6

Standing Row(s)
1
2 Ted Uren
3
4
5
6
7 2G?
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16

Graham.

Thanks for that Graham. Captain was Arthur Skellern (think that's correct)
Cat staff

Len (life's a blur) Blair Cat officer
Bernie Bullen / Chief Cook
Colin McLoughlin / 2nd cook
Tony Richardson / 2nd steward
Dave Allen / AS
Alex Roy / Cat boy

Phil Woolls / bosun
Ron Brunsdon / PO
Shaun Eckersley S1
Seamus Gallagher S1

A few others I can put faces to and ranks but not names passage of time and all that. I remember the 2nd Mate was called Hughie had his wife Jane with him. We had a bit of a crew swap half way through trip with the Shoush or Sivand, when we got orders for Kharg and some didn't want to go.

I think the chap who is 2 in the kneeling row was a Cat. Off. called Larry, a Scot, possibly from Glasgow. His surname eludes me, like a lot of things these days! Also, 15 in the back row looks familiar to me, but no names or rank are coming into my remaining brain cells.

Not guilty Graham, did not get myself in that picture.

Think this is Ron Hall RO, the one in the vest.
