For Sale: Model of HMS Bounty

For Sale:

Model of HMS Bounty 1783
– Scale 1:48 – Price R 3 500:00 onco

HMS Bounty was a small merchant vessel purchased by the Royal Navy for a botanical mission. The ship was sent to the Pacific ocean to collect ‘Breadfruit’ plants and transport them to British possessions in the West Indies. The mission was never completed, as disagreement between Lieutenant William Bligh in Command of the ship and his Sailing Master, Fletcher Christian, led to a revolt by half of the crew and their seizure of the Bounty on 28th April 1789, this act subsequently known as the ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ resulted in Bligh being cast adrift in a launch with 18 loyal seamen with whom he sailed 4 000 nautical miles to Timor in the East Indies and then by ship back to England.
