Rajula and Barpeta

Thanks for posting these splendid photos.

One of the best of pots-refit Rajula I have seen, with her steaming "at speed" (13kts) and one can almost feel the oppressive heat rising from the Hoogly river in that of Barpeta.

I don't know about the B class vessels pioneering AC power throughout, but it was claimed at the time that settees in the officers' cabins, which could be "capsized" to reveal a 42" bed. already made up with bedlinen, was a "first" (later to be copied in many passenger ships)
