# I've added a link to the sidebar on the left to the Pitcairn Islands Study Center. This is a great site with a wealth of inforation about Pitcairn and the Bounty.

# From Friends of Pitcairn comes this pointer to a short article about some Pitcairn history.

Here is the account of how the Bible changed one group of people because they found it to be a source of certainty by which to order their whole lives. It is an incident connected with the mutiny on the 'Bounty' in 1789. After setting Captain Bligh and 18 loyal sailors adrift in an open boat, the mutineers returned to Tahiti, where they persuaded 12 Tahitian girls to accompany them aboard the 'Bounty' and set sail with no other plans than to avoid capture.

# The Convict Colony-Mutiny on the 'Bounty'?.

Why the question mark? Many would ask what has the u2018Bountyu2019 mutiny have to do with Australia. Marlon Brando may not have mentioned it in one of his mumbles in the 1962 movie, but the infamous spiteful cruel and vicious Captain William Bligh, would become the fourth Governor of the New South Wales colony.

# A couple of photo's have been sent to me of Darralyn in hospital. They are hospital1.jpg and hospital2.jpg. Details on the donation drive for Darralyn and Turi are here.
