Remark : John Bates and I went down into the collection to check out the specimen that you are asking about. It is indeed a Lesser Fish-Eagle and it was collected by Walter Koelz in Junagadh, Gujarat, on 3 Feb 1949. We have more than 300 specimens in our collection from the same location around the same time, so we have no reason to think there's any error in the date or location. Photographs of the specimen and of the labels are attached
