Original photos of HMAS Australia leading the first Royal Australian Navy fleet in 1913

I was thrilled to receive these original photos last night showing my great uncle's ship with him up on deck as she entered Sydney Harbour 100 years ago.
Hi Michael,
Thought that Huey might be interested in the attached photos of his great-great uncle's warship entering Sydney Harbour in 1913.  They were taken by my husband's grandfather and are therefore not restricted in any way.
I enjoyed your family's story, Michael, and the sharing of the pride you feel today.

Here's a video link to that occasion all those years ago Michael. It actually shows some of the crew.
