Royal Australian Navy

Following up one of our unknowns on Singapore Cenotaph H Collins I found a reference to HMAS Sydney's action with the Emden. The following received DSMs but it doesn't seem as if the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) records are included on Lives database. We have one man who was in RAN as far as Alexandria enroute to join RFC when the merchant ship he transferred to was torpedoed in the Med (SS Glengartney), so no record of him either (AS Hugh Tregarthen RAN 6313)
For services in the action between H.M.A.S. "Sydney" and the German Cruiser "Emden" on the 9th of November, 1914:
Arthur W. Lambert, Chief Petty Officer; R.A.N. 7899.
Bertie Green, Able Seaman, R.A.N. 2511.
Joseph Kinniburgh, Able Seaman, R.A.N. 2907.
Harold M. Collins, Able Seaman, R.A.N. 3157.
William Alfred Taylor, Able Seaman, R.A.N. 2820.
Thomas Edward Mullins, Sick Berth Steward, R.A.N. 1606.
