This is a Story Walk & one of our most popular tours, certified by so many travelers through the years! If you like listening to stories about the Raj days and Kolkata then this is your tour! It is a very interesting story of how the British started trading in this part of the world rivalling earlier European entrants. Many a booming cannon later, they became the leading traders. What followed was a small fort, a big port, a great battle, many changing fortunes and lots of colonial cunning & politics. The East India Company & later the Flag of the Empire gave a lot of importance to Calcutta for its trading, political and administrative clout. She was after all the Capital of British India for a long time & arguably the second most important city in the Empire. Along with Defense & Administration came institutions for Entertainment, Education & Emancipation. The light of European renaissance came as an ambient source & later cascaded into its own indigenous, self generating brightness.

During the First World War, early seaplanes such as the Short 184 and Bristol F2 quickly established themselves in reconnaissance and submarine hunting roles. When peace returned, the fledgling Royal Air Force used a succession of graceful and magnificent flying boats to patrol the length and breadth of the British Empire. But with the outbreak of the Second World War, seaplanes and flying boats once more played a vital role in protecting the nations sea lanes, hunting the U-Boats and German surface raiders that menaced the convoys.The last flying boat left Royal Air Force service in 1959, and few remain in preservation today. This video however includes beautiful colour footage of the last Sunderland still flying as well as stunning air-to-air film of a Catalina.
