H.M.S. BOUNTY (XVIIIth Century) Under the command of Captain BLIGH, the three-master BOUNTY with 44 men on board left for the island of TAHITI on 24th December 1787. Her mission was to collect as many breadfruit trees as possible and to take them to the West Indies. After a voyage of 10 months including rounding Cape Horn, Captain BLIGH found he would have to wait 6 months before he could embark his cargo. The crew enjoyed a wonderful life ashore on the island and when the order was given to load up and embark there was little enthusiasm and many problems. On 18th April 1789, the notorious mutiny broke out on board. Captain BLIGH and 18 loyal members of his crew were abandoned with 150 pounds of biscuit, 20 pounds of salt meat, 120 liters of water, the ship's log, a compass and sextant, in the ship's longboat. With this crew, Captain BLIGH reached the Island of TIMOR after a voyage of 3,500 miles lasting 42 days. The mutineers found refuge on the Island of PITCAIRN where they unloaded the ship's provisions and then burned her. Captain BLIGH was later made a Colonial Governor and promoted to Rear Admiral.
