Royal Engineers
Transferred from military duties at Bangalore to Photographic Department of Survey of India 2 August 1889.[1]
‘Corporal Vandyke…has done good work, and seems in every way fitted for the post; his acqauintanceship with steam machinery, acquired during an apprenticeship of several years with first-class lithographic printing firms in England, will be found very useful when the new steam machinery is set to work.’[2]
Took over as zincographer from J. Watson, on his retirement in January 1890.[3] Inventor of the Vandyke Process, a photo-lithographic process used mainly for map printing, and employed by the Survey of India and other colonial printing offices.[4]
