Lascars on board the 'Dunera'
A Lascar was an Indian member of a ship's crew. The P&O began using them when the company's routes extended east of Suez in the 1840s. Traditionally they were recruited from along the coasts of India and from the Laccadive and Maldive islands. The P&O's Captain Baillie said of Indian crew members in 1957 "I have never failed to appreciate the cleanliness, discipline and comfort of our ships in which the deck hands are lascars and the stewards mostly Goanese".
