Does anyone know exactly when the Port trust Bombay began dredging the harbour with the Octopus about 100 years ago.
The Master was R.M.Strowger and I have pictures with him and his crew on board. Unfortunately I cannot see a number on the dredger to identitfy it.
Also if any one knows whether interviews for the job were held in England or India , and if any records exist in any archives ?
