Capt. Alexander Macleod RAIT.

Gentlemen of B.I. connections -

At our Master Mariners monthly meeting last night here in Hobart, one of my colleagues asked for assistance in tracing details of a B.I. Master of some years ago. I don't expect anyone out there to have known the man but someone might know if there is any way of tracing details of him through B.I. records, etc., etc.

All I've been given is the name and one vessel in which he is known to have served as Master - the name is Alexander Macleod Rait, the one vessel is s.s. "Java", apparently built approximately 1870 and scrapped in Bombay in 1904.

If anyone can offer assistance it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

G'day Dox -

No more than in the duty mess amongst the oily boilersuits!! You're not out at Bender Drive, are you?

Incidentally, my colleague has since corrected the subject matter's second name - it is not Macleod but Macdonald.

BI Records

BI Records are held in National Maritime Museaum in London. Apparently the pre war ones largely handwritten in ledgers. Appointments have to be made for the Reading Room so archives can be brought from an outhose storage a short distance away.
