    HMCS Protector was one of Australia’s first purpose‐built warships. It was purchased by the South Australian colonial government in response to fears of foreign invasion, and arrived in Port Adelaide in September 1884. For the next 40 years, Protector was an active asset of the South Australian colonial navy, Commonwealth Naval Force and Royal Australian Navy, and participated in two major conflicts: the Boxer Rebellion (1900) and World War I (1914‐1918).
