Quite possible for Ted and Mary to meet before, or even during, the early years of WW1. There were 9 cruisers on the Australian station in 1910. These had reduced to 4 in 1914, plus another 3 forming the New Zealand Division of the RN.
I know we think of ships and their crews being fully employed in wartime, but they still spent a lot of time in port undergoing routine maintenance and allowing plenty of shore-going opportunities for the officers and men.
