'Amra's' Wheelhouse

The Wheelhouse of British India S.N. Co's "1969-built "Amra" (see picture 23340 & others), taken in September 1970. The 3rd Officer is posing with the new-fangled "combinator" which can directly control the main engine - a feature viewed with suspicion by the Engineer Officers at the time! Take note of one antique item - the white uniform shoes.
