Swastika Logo On Ships Anchor

Recently I had the good fortune to be invited out for a short trip on the 1930's steam tug Willian C Daldy on Auckland harbour
The first thing that struck me was the white anchor and especially the Swastika Logo molded into one of the flutes.
I did a little research and discovered that this symbol/Logo was a good luck symbol in India well before it became one used extensively by the Nazis in the world wars.
In fact in this case it was the symbol used by the anchor manufacturer WL Byrers & Co Ltd of Sunderland England. You learn stuff like this every day of your that.
