    Default Bibby Gazettes?

    Calling all Bibby and ex Bibby employees.

    I was interested in the Bibby Gazettes posted here, but found them a little hard to read in the format they are.

    I have an idea to create a database that will allow one to see the information iin an easier manner.

    For that I need any gazettes that you might have saved over the years.

    The ones that have been posted here by Gulliver are going to be passed on to me in the near future, so I will have some to start with. I have been in touch with Bibbys and got a call today from them promising they will look and see what they have and send them on to me on loan. That call has prompted this appeal.

    So if you have any you are able to lend me, please get in touch. I will reimburse postage and keep the collections separate so they do not get mixed up and return them when complete.

    All this will need to be carried out by hand so will likely take a while, but the sooner I get started the better.

    So if you have held on to any (sadly I have not) please get in touch.

    TIA

    Bibbys have been back to me very quickly and have supplied copies for the following dates.

    1/4/1972, 19/2/1974, 18/9/1974, 1/3/1975, 19/9/1975, 16/2/1976, 10/9/1976, 23/2/1977, 1/10/1977
    15/3/1978, 27/9/1978, 30/4/1979, 26/3/1980, 21/5/1981, 21/10/1981, 6/4/1982, 27/9/1982
    22/4/1983, 21/10/1983, 13/4/1984

    so if anyone has these, they are not required by myself. That will cut down on the postage.

    Thank you.

    Dear Paul ,
    After our PM two weeks ago,and your Post here today,am I to understand you do not require those hard copies of the Bibby Gazettes that I have put images of in the Crew List section of the Gallery?


    I was going to send you all 7 copies but you appear to have 6 of them that Bibby's have now sent you.I will list the ones I have:-
    Bibby Gazettes

    # 41 Spring 78
    # 42 Autumn 78
    # 43 Spring 79
    # 44 Autumn 79
    # 45 Spring 80
    # 51 Spring 83
    # 52 Autumn 83

    So the one that Bibby's didn't send you would be # 44(Autumn 79). Am I correct?

    I will certainly send you this to keep if required-no postage required from you-or you can have the others too if you want?

    They have been round the world,as our ex-Bibby Line 'wallah' member Phil Jones in Tasmania kindly posted them on to me about 18 months ago.

    Let me know.

    Cheers !

    Davey,

    Yes, Bibbys came back very quickly. There is not need to send duplicates so only that errant one that you have identified will be needed please.

    I'll PM you my address.

    It is taking awhile to enter all the details. I'm only on my second gazette, but should speed up as most of the crew will be entered and just need to be selected.

    Thank you Davey.

    When I worked for Bibbys I *thought* I was working for a small shipping company by the standards of BP, Shell etc.

    In keying in the Gazette data, I am only about half way through, and already have over 1750 crew members entered (mainly officers) as per the Gazette.

    Now I know they did not spend all their time with Bibbys', but still.

    Ah well, back to the keying in.

    Default Last call for any gazettes?

    Ok,

    I have entered all the data for the photocopies received from Bibbys.
    Have Autumn 1979 left to do as supplied by Gulliver. Thank you Davey.

    Will soon be constructing the pages which will take some work getting the data to a website so only wish to do it once.

    Any gazettes for dates other than those mentioned previously would be most welcome before I proceed any further.?

    TIA

    Default Add your service details.?

    As you will be aware the Gazette dealt with two specific periods in the year, Spring & Autumn.

    Already I have had two members post me other details and thought it would be nice to have your service displayed on the site as well as the official gazette.

    So if you would like your details displayed on the website I don't think it will be this one, but I'll start from my own webspace anyway, then feel free to PM me that info.

    If you could supply it in the form of
    Code:
    Your name eg Steel, EP
    Ship                     Joined                Left                         Rank
    Hampshire           01/04/1972                12/09/1972                    Cadet
    Additionally if you have crewlists of the ships you sailed that are not in the Gazette, then send those as well if you like pretty much in the format of the gazette.

    Hope to hear from some of you.

    Thumbs up Very good thing here!

    What a nice idea you have going there Gasman,i think more should actually try and do similar for the various Companies!
    There are siofew records of Crew etc Online,and something like this could revive the old memories!
    Well done,i must really look into this type of thing,only to be honest i am useless as far as Building a Website is concerned,and i dont think i would venture into it !
    Hope someone else may look into it!
    Cheers

    There are many that must have Crew Lists etc like me for instace for the Company i worked with,so hopeully this may start a good thing!
    Cheers

    It desreves a 5 Star rating! which i have given!

    Thank You Doc,

    It is really a lot of work however. I never realised how much, but that is mainly down to the quantity of the data that needed to be entered.

    Fortunately/Unfortunately I am out of work at present and so have time on my hands and at least it keeps my brain active.

    Default Good news and bad news

    Good news first.

    I have a temporary job.

    Now the bad news.

    Little time to progress with this at the moment, so it is going to take a little longer.

    It will be done though. I promise that.
