Remembering Captain Bligh.

Recently whilst walking in London, I came across a blue plaque commemorating Captain William Bligh, Commander of the ‘Bounty’.

As an Australian, Captain Bligh is remembered differently. On 29 April 1789, whilst sailing from Tahiti, his crew mutinied and placed him in a small boat and sailed away.

After loosing control of his ship, he was placed in a charge of a country, the then New South Wales. He is not remembered as a good Governor.
