EMPIRE PARLIAMENTARIANS' VISIT FIRST MEETING IN PARLIAMENT HOUSE SPEAKER'S CHAIR CEREMONY CANBERRA A REALITY TO THE PEOPLE Canberra has, within the span of a week, been brought closer to reality with the people of the Commonwealth of Australia, whom it is destined nobly to serve. Monday, October 11, 1926, will be known as one of the great days of Australian history. It will be remembered as the day on which a gift of imperial significance was handed to the Parliament of Australia, as the day on which.a distinguished gathering of Empire statesmen visited Canberra, as the day when members of the Government and Parliament of the Commonwealth gathered at Canberra in numbers previously not attained, and as the day when the first official gathering took place in the new Houses of Parliament. To the hundreds who witnessed the ceremony, and to the tens of thousands who heard it by radio, came as never before, the reality of Canberra, and a message that Canberra had no longer to be vindicated; it is now by all true Australians to be exalted and revered.

THE DUKE'S VISIT AND THE HISTORIC "RENOWN" Interesting Features [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

THE DUKE'S VISIT AND THE HISTORIC "RENOWN" Interesting Features The battle-cruiser Renown, which has been chosen to convey the Duke and Duchess of York to Australia, is one of the three biggest ships in the Navy. Her sister vessel, the Repulse and the gigantic Hood are the other two. Since the Renown was last in Aus- tralian waters, with the Prince of   Wales, six years ago, she has under- gone an extensive refit. This has taken three years and is only now on the eve of being completed. Probably it has cost much more than £1,000,000.   Among other things, the battle- cruiser has been bulged against tor- pedo attack, and her armour protection has been improved. She ranks now among the smartest-looking and up- to-date warships afloat.     Coming thus fresh from dockyard hands, the Renown needs little to equip her for the Royal tour. So far, no order for special work of any kind has been given. The Renown is being fit- ted out as a wa...

Not long ago Mr. Friend made a descent on the Sow and Pigs Reef, and was lucky enough to witness a battle between a tiger shark and a grey nurse. Though the grey nurse was the larger, being about 10 or 12 feet long, the tiger shark, which measured about 3 feet, was the aggressor. He seized his adversary just above the tail and hung on, while the grey nurse spun round and round like a top in his at- tempt to retaliate. They were still spinning when they passed out of Mr. Friend's range of vision. As...
