Tenbury

I'm interested to know if anyone has any old photos of the Tenbury? I have only been able to find one photo on the gallery.

I would also really like to hear from anyone who actually served on the Tenbury and any stories they have about serving on this ship.

Regards,

BP Cadet

BP Cadet,
I was still serving in BP when this 'raising the flag' nonsense started. It's predecessor was 'No Accidents, No Harm to People, No Damage to the Enviroment'.
The REAL BP Shipping Staff termed this as 'No Drink, No Shoreleave, No Fun'.

Vasco,

Thanks for your reply. The reason I ask is because my Dad served on the Tenbury whilst he was a deck cadet with Houlders. I know this was his first ship too. I wshall find out the dates when he served with the Tenbury for you.

Regards,

BPCadet

bpcadet

if you don't want to publicize your dads name you can send me a private email. However i wouldn't have sailed with him there as i was the first tripper.

if you check my details all the ships,with dates,are there.

She was built by Burntisland and delivered into Houlders service in 1965 – one of apprentices from the 1965 training year at Kind Edward VII joined her as his first trip to sea - his first voyage, her second voyage; maybe your father was on board at that time. It was the standard trip out to Buenos Aires and back to the UK.

You are most welcome to contact me via a PM if you want to discuss anything further about that January 1966 trip.

Has anyone happened to sail with the Tenbury at around April 1973?

Just to add to the picture - Tenbury was launched 14-05-1965 by Burntisland Shipbuilding and Hull Number 409 – she had John Brown Sulzer 6 cylinder 2SCSA built by John Brown & Co Clydebank. She was completed and handed over 04-10-65

As a curious foot note, in 1973 the Tenbury was actually sold to Bibby Bulk Carriers Ltd., of Liverpool, but Houlders remained as her Managers and the name was unchanged. It was Bibby who sold her in 1974 to Gulfeast, who re-named her Al-Barat

Good Morning BPCadet.
I joined the "Tenbury" at Liverpool Nov. 73 and we did a French MM Charter to the Pacific(French Territories Tahiti,Noumea etc.) What a briiliant voyage.
I signed off in Liverpool March 73 and re-signed on for a coastal voyage and finally signed off in Manchester April 73 so perhaps this ties in with your dates in question.
Regards

Marinero,

Thanks for your reply. Seems that my Dad served with the Tenbury as a deck cadet from April through until November 1973 and signed off in Liverpool.

Other ships he sailed with include the Sagamore and the Orotava Bridge.

Kind Regards

BPCadet

As a curious coincidence, in 1973 Houlders was the exclusive broker for Messageries Maritimes and they would have been acting both for the Owners and the Charterers at the same time on this one… One can almost image the strong words the broker would have used when talking to himself to get the rate agreed….

Normally these were single timecharter trips to French Polynesia and not round voyages, and with a certain amount of embarrassment, it would seem that money was made out of supporting (through commerce rather than emotion) the somewhat unfortunate desire of the French at that time to use the South Pacific paradise as their backyard and conduct for a total of 193 nuclear tests between 1966 to 1996.

In my last post I said I joined in Nov 73. I should have said Nov 72 (old age you know)
Yes Mark I think it was a one way charter as we loaded raw sugar in Lorenquo Marques for Liverpool on the way back.

Hi Tonga and all others.

Sailed on the Tenbury from 2 March 72 to 4 August 72. Joined the ship in New York (flew out), to South Africa with cargo, light to Newcastle NSW, load steel sheeting in rolls for Callao,Peru, light to NZ, load gen cargo then to Europe paying off in Bremen. Great ship, fantastic voyage and sorry to leave her. Not sure of total mileage but it must have been many 10s of 1000s

Swan River posts moved

In case anyone should wonder, there were quite a few Swan River comments in amongst these Tenbury postings, so I have gathered them together and they are now in their own thread, as that lady deserves her own thread, as does the Tenbury here.
