"It could have been the Victorian Navy (Charlie pictured in his Navy uniform). He was on the Cerberus. Anyway, then he got out of the navy and they moved to Sorrento and opened up a fruit shop." Vin Burnham.
* 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.
