Protector and Childers

This time, the large South Australian Gunboat Protector and the Torpedoboat Childers. The former served on the China Station during the Boxer Rebelion. The Victorians and New South Welsh provided Naval brigades, 200 and 260 men strong respectively, along with some 14prs from the Victorians, which were tansported together in the steamer Salamis.

Thanks Greg- very useful information on the PROTECTOR and certainly I may have a go at building a 1/600th model of the Protector- later in the Year. KEV.
