In a first, all three amphibious vessels of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), HMAS Canberra, HMAS Choules and HMAS Adelaide, sailed together in formation.

This was the first time that the two LHDs and the single LSD of the RAN have operated together at sea. The event occured during a Force Integration Training off the east coast of Australia. The Australian Defence Force is conducting maritime task group training off Australia’s east coast and northern waters ahead of resuming major activities in the second half of the year.

You mean younger - the Commonwealth of Australia was created on Jan 1, 1901.

They pretty much have to in that part of the world.

I think they're referring to the RAN, which has existed continuously in some form since 1901.
