William Jones

Able Seaman

On 10 January 1885 the Cerberus log book recorded that William Jones (from Cerberus) was hurt on board Success and, as a result, was sent to Melbourne Hospital.

* 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.
