File 8

Talk to the First Mate in the Wharf about the Milka clue. This will allow you to reach Café Ankh.

File 9

In order to get on the Milka, you will need the crowbar which can be found on a cart outside Café Ankh. Use the crowbar on the single crate on the Wharf when the sailor is absent (if the sailor is present, exit and re-enter). This will allow you to get onboard the Milka.

File 10

Talk to Nobby in Café Ankh about his main topic, the Vimes topic and Milka clue. You can now get to Pseudopolis Yard (although give Nobby a chance to get back there before you try and visit).
