Original vintage poster detailing expansions in India's navy. The boat featured on the poster is the HMIS Kistna (U46), a Black Swan class sloop which served in the Royal Indian Navy during World War II. The striking photo of the ship is accompanied by captions in multiple foreign scripts, including Hindi and Arabic. A truly unique find, perfect for any amateur (or professional!) naval historian.

Condition: Fair, please note tears along the borders. The appearance of tears can be improved by having the poster linen-backed.
