    Having found you excellent website I wondered if you can help me. I am researching my family tree and know that my Great grandfather was connected with the Kotree Sind Ferry/Railway and would like to find out more.
    His name was Richard Tickner (born abt 1838) married to Catherine Josephine Hankinson (born 1847) in 1866 in Bombay.
    I believe that his wife died in Kotree in 1877 and Richard returned to the UK.
    Any information regarding to his life or work would be welcome.
    Many thanks

  4. Dear Sirs,
    I am searching your very interesting historical information website about the Karachi-Kotri-Hyderabad railway section.
    The reason being: my friend worked during 1975-1976 for Volkervam Pty. Ltd. from Karachi on the construction of the new bridge piers for the second RR-bridge at Kotri-Hyderabad. (His first foreign job!).
    I am now looking for a few photo’s showing the offshore construction progress in the middle of the Indus river of the foundation-works of these new bridge piers.
    My friend is now retiring and I would like to use these photo’s during his farewell party on December 16, 2009.
    The undersigned also worked for Volkervan in Karachi during the same period.

    I would be most obliged I you could help me!
    Thank you.
    Sincerely yours,
    Jan H. de Jager, in the village of Heiloo in Holland (Netherlands).
