This site is devoted to all subjects connected with the shipping company British India Steam Navigation, or BI as it is most often known. BI was formed in 1856 and remained one of the largest companies in the British mercantile marine until it was finally, entirely absorbed into P&O in 1972. Here you will find
information about BI, its ships, routes, services, the people who manned the ships and ran the company. The site is essentially one of the contact points for former BI staff. The site contains at least one referenced piece of information for each of
BI's 700 owned and managed ships.
