Tom Crean joins crew of HMS Ringarooma Tom Crean Book

On February 15th 1900, serving as a Petty Officer 2nd Class, Tom Crean was assigned to HMS Ringarooma.

Ringarooma was a ship assigned to the Australia Station

He would serve on Ringarooma for almost two years before being recruited to Captain Scott’s ship RSS Discovery on December 10th 1901.

The photograph shown here was taken while Tom was serving on the Ringarooma. It was a time in his life that we know he wasn’t happy as he was subjected to a number of demotions. Better fortune would be found on his next posting to Discovery and Tom Crean would never suffer another demotion, only promotions throughout the rest of his time in the Navy.
