Old BP Tanker GP1 from 1975 - 1983

Hi, Looking for ex crew members of BP tankers I sailed on Fri. 1975 - 1983.... I was serving when the Team Concept came about as well as the Irano British Venture.
I was GP Trainee on British Trent then went on to serve on Tenacity, Kennet, Shoosh, Minab and others...
Suppose a lot of the older guys have since passed away as I am 60 now... But are any of my age group still floating around.
Some of the CPOs I served under were Mick McLeish, Jan Richards, Henry Creaser.
I lost all my memories of those great times in a burglary many years ago, discharge book and photos, ..... So sad !!
Let's hope I can rekindle some memories ??
