HISTORY -- The British India Steam Navigation Company was formed in 1856 as the Calcutta and Burmah Steam Navigation Company. The company had been formed out of Mackinnon, Mackenzie & Co, a trading partnership of the Scots William Mackinnon and Robert Mackenzie, to carry mail between Calcutta and Rangoon. It became British India SN Co in 1862. Under the hand of Lord Inchcape (James Mackay) who had become chairman in 1913, the company became part of the P&O group of companies in 1914 through a complex amalgamation, but continued with its own identity and organisation for another nearly 60 years until 1972, when it was entirely absorbed into P&O.

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- A square-rigged ship has sails that are raised and lowered with a horizontal spar. As the name implies, square-rigged sails have four corners; the sails on modern fore-and-aft rigged ships are triangular. While the operation of a traditional three-masted square-rigger requires the management of hundreds of ropes and lines, the basic elements of navigating one of these ships are fairly easy to understand.
