England - Bounty
A coal carrying merchant ship operating on the coast
of England, named the Bethia, was purchased by the Admiralty, renamed
the H.M.S. Bounty, and recommissioned in 1787 for a special mission. She
was to sail halfway around the world to Tahiti, collect sapling breadfruit
trees and transport them to the West Indies. Owners of the burgeoning
British plantations there needed a cheap source of food for the workers.
