Made redundant 05/04/86    

Joined BP Shipping 06/04/86

Master BP.   Made redundant 1992 on grounds of age. -- told I was too old;  they wanted young vigorous Masters!   I was actually 51.

Joined TK Shipping(Canada) 07/92

Took early retirement             05/97

I was offered more sea service , but declined the offer, however I did almost two years consultancy work for them out of TK's Glasgow office..

Initially on retirement I did quite a bit of angling, and took an HNC in IT.  

I started on the HND course but the funding was withdrawn to fund mental health

Now due to health issues do very little, but read avidly.
