'Many of the scenes in the story are taken onboard the Australian flagship Australia, and under Its frowning 12in guns the hero lieutenant and his sweetheart, pledge their troth. There is another officer also in love with the girl, and his jealousy leads to a bitter revenge. The events whlch follow show an attempt to steal certain details of a new explosive, and an abduction. Dave Smith, the Australian champion pugilist, takes part in the picture, and he is seen in a rescue scene of exciting situations. The appearance of a strange cruiser, the firing of a submarine mine, and the speeding of the fastest craft in Australian waters, is a prelude to the Australia being seen in action, and the 12in guns In play, and the destruction of the mysterious war-ship. The final scene is a naval wedding on Garden Island.'
