Description

Once again, I continue my study of HMAS Cerberus.

HMAS Cerberus is a breastwork monitor, a type of ship that was originated between 1863 and 1870. It was built for the Australian colony in 1870 and arrived in Port Phillip in 1871. By World War 1, the weapons and boilers were in operable, and Cerberus was used as a guard ship and munitions store.
In 1924, Cerberus was sold as scrap, and sunk as a breakwater off Half Moon Bay.

It is the only surviving ship of the Australian colonial navies, and one of two ships in the world with Coles turrets.

The Cerberus rots into the ocean, services rendered.
