That may have been me, but my conclusion was it made Mary almost a decade older, on the basis that AFAIK there were no RN ships visiting Australia during the war years.
But John was clearly born during WWI, so a postwar marriage is out.
Which leaves Ted serving on a RN Cruiser on the Australia Station between 1905 (when the last one arrived) and 1910-1913 (during which time they gradually returned to England).
That leads to an 18 year old Mary meeting and marrying Ted in Sydney during that period. (Later is not possible as c.1914 Ted will be too busy to go camping with Mary before John is born.)
