'It was a realistic picture, beginning with the training ship Tingara, on which Australian Jack Tars are made; there is a transfer of a draft from the training ship when war breaks out to the Sydney and Melbourne. One of the lads, coming home wounded from the Emden encounter, re-visiting the Tingara, tells the story of how the Emden was conquered, and the pictures which illustrate this yarn are true to the narrative, and undoubtedly afford a good idea of the fight. Pictures of the Emden after the fight which show how the pirate was smashed, were the last part.'
