Welcome to the Benjidog British India Resources Website

This website was constructed as a new home for various resources that were originally published on the excellent MerchantNavyOfficers.com website which ceased operation in August 2014 following the sad loss of its creator Fred Waddington. I have re-published as much of the content as possible as part of the Benjidog Historical Research Resources website with the agreement of Fred Waddington's widow Bobbie to ensure that it is not lost.

Unfortunately the contact details of the original contributors to the old site are not available to me so I have been unable to contact them. I hope that they will be pleased that their contributions have been preserved. If any contributor to Merchantnavyofficers.com objects to specific material being re-published, my contact details are at the foot of this page.
