The next day he was taken to Klaver Camp, where his body was draped with a Royal Naval White Ensign and he was buried with full naval honours, including a gun salute and the playing of the Last Post.

Nuisance's service record was not exemplary. Aside from the offences of travelling on the trains without his free pass, being absent without leave, losing his collar and refusing to leave the pub at closing time, his record shows that he was sentenced to having all bones removed for seven days for sleeping in an improper place — to wit, the bed of one of the Petty Officers.

Just Nuisance was the only dog ever to be officially enlisted in the Royal Navy. He was a Great Dane who between 1939 and 1944 served at HMS Afrikander, a Royal Navy shore establishment in Simon's Town, South Africa. He died in 1944 at the age of seven years and was buried with full military honours.
Some Ausie flavour:


Just Nuisance was entitled to the same benefits as any other Able Seaman, which included a cap. Here he sports a cap from HMAS Canberra, in one of many promotional photos taken during World War II.


Free go for anybody.

OK, the Commonwealth of Australia has 6 states, and 3 mainland territories.

How many external territories does it have? Bonus points for naming any of them.

I'm going 3.

Cocos and Keeling, Christmas and Antarctic territory.

If it's more, I can't think of it.

I was also thinking of Norfolk but think it's semi-autonomous and administered by NSW from memory.
