Was Adrian two year chief on the Security? I recall a friend of mine mentioning the name, and I am sure it was in connection with that ship.

Sailed with Adrian briefly on the Dart (Early 85) and I think he went to the Gas Ship Enterprise?

"British Diplomat" was built in France and transferred to British BP and had wine tanks. The chief engineer used them as a secret store of Fresh Water in case his beloved Boilers had a whoopsee. I was Mate and was always overloaded by 40 tons!!
