The work of modernising the gunboat Gayundah and improving her accommodation as a training vessel for the Naval Reserve is proceeding apace at Sydney. It is expected that the gunboat will be ready for service by the end of March. Unless a substitute is sent to Queensland before then, the Gayundah will come direct to Brisbane to enter upon the annual training work, which was originally scheduled to begin early in March.
