HMVS CERBERUS, (armoured-turret ship), met a gale while on passage from Chatham to Plymouth, England. Officials at the Admiralty were concerned at the seaworthiness of the ship, following the loss of HMS CAPTAIN, a similar type of vessel. LEUT Panter, RN, reported the ship sailed like ‘a half-tide rock’. On arrival at Plymouth, the crew promptly deserted.
