The Chief Gunner’s journal provides, on one side of the diary, a rough journal by Edward Argent detailing the voyage to China of the PROTECTOR to serve with the Admiralty during the Boxer Rebellion. He writes of the events that occur during the voyage which involve travelling from Adelaide through to Sydney and Townsville and then passing through Thursday Island, the Philippines and Hong Kong before ultimately landing at Shanghai. It then follows through the journey back when the PROTECTOR arrives in Port Adelaide on the 6th of January 1901. The other side of the diary contains handwritten instructions on the duties of sailors and policy instructions as well as a list of gunners stores.
