Description:

Large scale hydrographic chart of Sydney Harbour from surveys made by Lieut. Nares on HMS Fantome. The Royal Navy built Fantome for Survey Service, arriving in Australian waters in 1907 to continue the East Coast survey begun by HMS Penguin in 1905. From 1907 until the outbreak of World War I, Fantome was almost continuously engaged on survey operations in Australian waters. For some four years she was commanded by Commander F.C.C. Pasco RN, a grandson of Crawford Pasco who served on HMS Beagle under John Lort Stokes and the son of Lieut. Pasco, Nelson’ signal officer in HMS Victory at Trafalgar.
