A note with the photo states that the ex-commander paymaster is "in HMVS Cerberus with family". Whether this means that the photo was taken in Cerberus or that the Paymaster was from Cerberus is not known.
Hubert Harry Jones (accountant) born in Launceston married Elizabeth Nancy Cook in 1890 in Victoria and died in 1925 aged 64.
