Looking for people who worked with my Dad and might have memories of him to share. BP tankers in 1960's,70's,80's and 90's. Be really grateful for any help.

Hannah, if you give a few more details, such as place and date of birth, it may help, also any ships names if you have them, they will be in his Discharge Book if you have it, it will be blue and have a six digit number beginning with R
