Ian Purvis

On behalf of a few members, including myself, does anyone know the career history of Capt. Ian Purvis? He was master of the Mobil Endurance in 1974 and came from Merseyside.

I sailed with Ian on the MOBIL FALCON in 1980. He left Mobil not long afterwards following a contretemps with an person from the office. Not sure where he went then. Believe he lived in Stockport and always said he had something to do with a nightclub business.

Ian Purvis, what a great shipmate. I remember Ian when he was Mate of the Mobil Astral in 71/72. Cy Thomas or Jimmy James was the 'old man'. I always thought he was from Southport. Whatever he is doing, he will be a success, that's for sure.

Another couple of Mobil mate's just come to mind was a Dougie Trottman and George Cram. All around the same time as Ian.

George Cram was with Mobil for a few years more as Master on the North Sea MATCO vessels and other assignments.

Dougie Trottman was on one of the Loch Striven laid up vessels for a while but then think he left not long after.

The person who would know is probably Ian (Chuff) McKenzie who I saw at the annual Mobil Shipping reunion in London two weeks ago.

Another just came to mind was Spencer-Smith, 2/Off and his wife Marianne. Also an engineer Richard Coles, 3/Eng and wife Anne.
