BIBLIOGRAPHY

 

Brought up with a love of the sea and some experience in small boats in the South of England, Barry embarked upon a career at sea when he commenced his secondary education at Pangbourne Nautical College and later joined Port Line as an apprentice.

After obtaining his Second Mate’s certificate, he joined P&O as a junior officer. He went on to serve the company in cargo and passenger ships, leaving after brief periods as Staff Captain and in command, to settle in Auckland, New Zealand.

He then became a marine surveyor and shortly afterwards started his own surveying firm which, in due course, developed successfully and was appointed the Lloyd’s Agent covering the two largest ports in the country.

After selling his business, he became a Director and Consultant Surveyor with GAB Robins New Zealand Ltd, then a member of the worldwide Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS Group), until he retired from full-time employment to act as a Marine Consultant to the insurance and shipping industries in New Zealand.

An honorary Fellow of the International Institute of Marine Surveying, he has written Units of their Diploma Courses and continues to write for the Institute, having earlier written for Informa (now Lloyd’s Maritime Academy).

During most of his seafaring years, and later after coming ashore, Captain Thompson served with the Naval Reserve. He is a Liveryman of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, a Freeman of the City of London and a Fellow of the Nautical Institute. He was for a time Deputy Chairman of the NZ Committee of Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and a consultant surveyor appointed by the Salvage Association.

With an interest in sail training and youth development, he has served on the Boats Committee of the New Zealand Outward Bound School, as Deputy Chairman (now a Vice Patron) of the Spirit of Adventure Trust and as a relieving master of New Zealand’s two principal sail training ships which the Trust has operated.
