    Default Mutiny on the Bounty

    The captain of the Bounty woke up to an unpleasant surprise in 1789 – a bayonet pointed at his face and an order to abandon ship. Not the best way to wake up! Read the treacherous tale of the mutiny here: https://www.rmg.co.uk/discover/explo...iDwQD1WBs_yN8E

    The mutiny on the Bounty is one of the most well known mutinies that ever occurred in the British Royal Navy. On 28 April 1789, master’s mate Fletcher Christian, along with 18 mutineers, took control of the Bounty and cast the captain, Lieutenant William Bligh, and 18 of his men adrift in the Pacific Ocean in a small boat.

    I was in Pitcairn Island a few weeks ago to see my old friend, Jackie Christian , she is the Grt grt, grt grt granddaughter of Fletcher.
    and then to Tahiti to see my old friend Manuraii Young, descended from Mr Mid Shipman Edward Young one of the Mutineers, I do it nearly every year.

    Capt
    I would have thought by now you would have taken up residency in one of those Island with the Friends you have there,and lived like a true Islander amongst them all,that i think would be a great way to finish off one's life .
    Surely a stress free time with Sea and Sands surrounding you,the relaxation and unending papering from all those lovely Ladies! Oh La LA! LOL Take all your Money and Run mate! Leave all the stress behind you!

    Good idea Vernon.

    Here are some of my Tahitian friends,
    with Jocelyn and Manuraii Young , descended from the Mutineer,
    and lovely ladies, and Eddie and Stan at a party on the beach.

    some more pics,
    Jackie Christian and me in Pitcairns.
    Happiness is a beach in Moorea,
    One of the Pitcairns Boats.
    Eline, beautiful, in Moorea..
    Rock memorial to the BOUNTY on the beach at Matavai Bay in Tahiti where the Bounty lay for six months to await the Bread Fruit Season., it has a list of all the crew members and other information on Plaques on it. with friend Manuraii Young.
    There is a Bread Fruit tree behind. My Dentist in Bolton pulled a tooth, he was called , Mr Christian, so I took the tooth to Tahiti and buried it under that tree, so from one Mr Christian to another,

    This is why they had a Mutiny, they did not want to go back to their cold damp hovels in the slums of Portsmouth.
