?Today is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the British Tanker Company on 30th April 1915. There have been good times and bad, but many of us remember our time at sea with affection and although there was a very sour ending for many in 1986, I think we woulld all wish those still involved with the Company all the best for the future.
The BP Magazine, released today, has a section celebrating the achievements of the company todate and also remembering the black spots. The magazine can be dowloaded from the BP web site or from here.
There is also a press release.
It is also worth remembering that John Ridgway, the CEO since 2009 and an ex company apprentice is retiring today. Many of us will know him, having sailed with him or spent time at college in Plymouth with him. Well done Doss!
