AUSTRALIAN SEA SERVICE.

SOME NAVAL BEGINNINGS.

By T. DUNBABIN.

FROM THE ARGUS. SAT 12 JULY 1919.

Macquarie was as insistent as Phillip about the need for two vessels for the Service of the colony, but he asked that they should not be subject to Admiralty control. Two armed brigs, the Emu and the Kangaroo, were bought in 1812. The Emu was captured on the way out by the American privateer Holkar, which carried 137 men to the Emu’s 22. The Kangaroo reached Sydney safely, and on March 12, .1815, a second Emu arrived.
