British India Steamship Navigation Co. Ltd.


This is a new home for various resources that were originally published on the excellent 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 with the agreement of Fred's widow Bobbie to ensure that it is not lost.

The contact details of the original contributors are not available to me, but I am sure that they will be pleased that their contributions have been preserved.
