Originally from a group photo of the Williamstown Naval Brigade Field Gun Crew circa 1889 courtesy of Ada Ackerly.
This version supplied by Rhonda Jones with notes suggesting that the photo was taken on the 21st of June 1887 by A. Rider.
* 1853 is given as the commencement date for the Victorian Navy as this is the year that Commander Lockyer (RN) went to Britain to superintend the building of HMCS Victoria.
Although the Victorian Navy ended in 1901 the career of Cerbeus etc continued. In 1910 the new ships started arriving & manning levels increased.
Information & photographs of men who served in the Victorian Naval Forces is eagerly sought. Please contact the webmaster.
