The hms bounty

Postby Gasho В» 04.04.2020

.

In April of , Captain William Bligh lost control of his ship in one of the most famous mutinies in history. There began one of the most extraordinary stories of seafaring endurance and survival, in which Bligh and his men, powered perhaps by a desire for righteous revenge, navigated 3, nautical miles over 47 days and arrived in Timor to report the mutiny. Only one man did not make it - a sailor by the name of John Norton was stoned to death by natives during an unsuccessful attempt to make landfall for provisions on the remote Tofua Island.

Meanwhile, the mutineers set out to establish their life of ease on Tubuai, Tahiti and Pitcairn Islands with their new native wives. What followed was anything but an idyllic life. The men fought and squabbled and succumbed to disease, they committed suicide, and they killed each other in cold blood.

Eighteen years later, when Pitcairn and the mutineers were discovered by the ship Topaz, only one of the men was still alive. In , photographer and explorer Luis Marden made the extraordinary discovery of the remains of the Bounty, still visible in shallow water off the shores of Pitcairn, more or less undisturbed for a century and a half.

Although some artifacts from the wreck were removed, there are still remains that can be seen by divers willing to risk the dangerous swells of the bay. Other artifacts are on display at the community hall on Pitcairn. Elsewhere, you can pay your respects to Captain Bligh in London, where his tomb is topped with a carving of breadfruit.
