Looking for Sunny Beachfront Property 15 August 1916

So what does it take to capture a port on the Indian Ocean? Well in 1916 it required a pre-dreadnought, a seaplane tender with a single plane and a kite balloon, two monitors and a couple of protective cruisers and a composite battalion of troops.

For us, in the words of Shakespeare’s King Henry IV and Sherlock Holmes, the game is afoot. I hope you will join us in this journey.
