Just said hello and left details on the welcome forum.
My name is Dave Edworthy, was a Leckie on BP Tankers for the period above, would love to hear from any former shipmates from that period.

Hiya Dave,
James Megarrell here, did'nt we sail together on one of the "River Boats", I'll take a guess at the "Test". If I remember correctly the lads used to call you "Joe 90", after a character in a TV show.
Have a look at your discharge book.
Enjoy the site it's fascinating, lots of BP guys and other companies as well. Just like being back at sea. Hope to hear from you.
Regards JamesM

Hi Jim
From memory sailed with you on the Kiwi, Dart and perhaps another.
Were you from Mansfield?, married to Maggie?

Hi, did any of you guys know a Stephanie Broster? I did my Second Mates with her at South Shields College around 1980?
Steph Broster was Third Mate on my first trip as Deck Boy. We both joined the British Loyalty at RAK July 4th 1979.
