Examples of Certificates of Service for one time ‘naval’ officers serving within the Indian Administration

In spite of the title, the Marine Department is also covered in this series of volumes from 1908 to 1927. It should be noted that these merely contain senior officials in the Royal Indian Marine Dockyards at Bombay and Calcutta. As these were not seagoing personnel by any stretch of the imagination, I have not copied an example.

Produced annually, this is last volume of a ‘state’ series running from 1875 to 1945. In this particular case (dealing with Scind only) the only R.I.N. connection relates to two officials at the Mercantile Marine Department, Karachi.
