In the Harbour department a special sum of $2,550 has been provided for a buoy for the Cust Rocks, and some small expense is incurred on account of the new light to be placed on Blackhead's Hill. These steps will, it is hoped, assist navigation in the harbour of which complaint was made when the cruiser "Flora" went aground. They are the result of correspondence with the Admiral and the report of a Special Committee. Legco minutes, 24TH SEPTEMBER, 1908

as an aside to that, here's an article on the AUgust 1907 grounding of HMS Flora
