  1. I have photo’s dating from 1880’s and need help with background. They are related to European Hooghley pilots living in Calcutta.


    1. Hello Rosie,
      I suggest you explore Internet resources for your objects using relevant keywords like, memoirs, letters, private papers, biography, obituary etc. There are websites relating to British Navy. You may find some links in FIBiS at For our purpose, the most important of resources is indeed the British Library holdings. My best wishes..
