    Default British Resource

    Dear Mr Williams

    My father sailed on BP tankers during the 1950's and early 60's and one of the tankersd he sailed on as the British Resource, from memory he also sailed on the Consul, Corporal, and Guardian. his name was Kenneth Creamer. Sadly my father died in 1968 and I would love to know more about his life at sea.
    Hopefully somebody will remember sailing with him.

    Best wishes
    Dianne

    Welcome to the site Dianne. Thanks for stopping by to introduce yourself and tell us about your late father. It is to be hoped that you enjoy the content here which is as varied as the members. I do hope that you find someone who sailed with or remembers Kenneth Creamer. Was he an Engineer, Radio Officer on Deck or in Catering?

    Cool B.P.Ships Photo's

    Hi Wullie.
    I know this goes back a while,but I came across
    a message saying that you had been in contact
    with B.P. who supplied you with photo's of the
    ships you sailed on.Back in the 50s I was on the
    British Pioneer,Resource,Envoy,Hero and the Duke
    and although I have a few photo's of these ships,
    I would like to enlarge my collection so I am hoping
    that you will be able to supply me with a name,address
    etc of a contact at B.P.You can contact me by email HERE if you prefer.

    Default British Might.

    I sailed on BRITISH MIGHT in 1948 and did two trips I recall which was nearly a year but that included a few enjoyable weeks in drydock in Falmouth. Years later I like a lot of us decided I would like photos of all the ships I sailed on, this was maybe in the late 1970s when I was thinking of career change (Oil rigs)
    Anyway British Might long gone even company name had changed from British Tanker Company (BTC Better Times Coming) to BP. On an offchance I wrote to their head office in London and asked if they had a photo of the British Might. Quite soon afterwards lo and behold a very nice letter and photograph arrived to add to my collection of the sixty odd ships I sailed on. The photo showed British Might in her wartime roll with guns still in place
