Shell-Mex & BP 44 Club

Membership is open to anyone who was regularly employed by one or more of the Shell-Mex and BP Group of Companies during the 44 years of SMBP’s existence, up to 1975. Originally intended for those who retired before 1976, membership was extended to employees of SMBP who retired with a Shell or BP pension. Deferred pensioners and spouses of former employees are also welcome.

Shell Four Star Club

The club was formed in 1955 with the aim of keeping long-serving employees in touch with one another.

It is open to anyone with Group service of at least 40 years and who is permanently resident in the UK.

So that members can meet with old colleagues, a cocktail party is held in conjunction with the AGM in the spring of each year and a lunch is organised in the autumn. These events normally take place around the London area. A handbook of members is published regularly.

If there are any pensioners who might qualify but have not been invited to join the club and who would like to know more, they should write to The Secretary, Shell Four-Star Club, 14th floor Bank Street London EC14 5NR or email
