Then he was stationed on the HMS Sylvia and HMS Serpent on the coasts of China and Japan. Promoted to Lieutenant in 1869, he successfully surveyed the waters of Yangtze. In 1872, he led the search expedition for Livingstone, but resigned after six months. In 1873 he was assigned to Moresby to explore the coasts of New Guinea and was in 1875 placed in command of HMS Renard and later the HMS Alacrity, to survey Fiji Islands. In 1881 he was selected to be in charge of the reorganised Marine Survey of India and was specially promoted to commander. He was reassigned to the command of HMS Sylvia in 1885 to survey the coasts of Africa, Spain, Turkey and Greece in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. By 1889 he was in command of the HMS Rambler at Thursday Island, and worked in the Torres Strait. His last naval appointment was in 1895, to survey the coasts of Western Australia. He retired as a captain in 1897 and died on December 8, 1921. His memoirs were published in 1885 'Memoirs of Hydrography'. Lieutenant and later Commander, Royal Navy.
