      Four vessels of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Seaflower:

      HMS Seaflower was a 16-gun brig-sloop purchased in April 1782 that the Manche, under Jean Dornal de Guy, captured near Bencoolen on 29 September 1808.

      HMS Seaflower was a 16-gun brig-sloop listed in 1809, and sold on 1 September 1814.

      HMS Seaflower was a 4 gun cutter launched at Portsmouth Dockyard on 20 May 1830 and broken up at Charlton, scrapping completed on 8 October 1866.

      HMS Seaflower was an 8 gun training brig, launched at Pembroke Dockyard on 25 February 1873. Converted to a floating workship in January 1904, the ship was sold at Charlton on 7 April 1908.

      That is a circa 1870's Royal Navy uniform. So he would have been assigned to the 4th H.M.S. Seaflower.
