Naval career

Palliser was appointed a Commander in the Royal Navy in 1869. Interestingly in 1882 he was offered a map purporting to show the location on the Cocos Islands of gold and silver looted from the Mary Dear but, despite looking, he never found anything. Following promotion to Captain in 1878, he was given command of HMS Victory in 1891 and appointed Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Station in 1896. Promoted to full admiral in 1904, he died in 1907 and was buried at Everton Church in Bedfordshire.
