The Pandora Story

HMS Pandora was a 24-gun Porcupine class frigate of the Royal Navy, built by Adams and Barnard at Deptford, England and launched on 17 May 1779. She was deployed in North American waters during the American Revolutionary War, but was best known for being sent in 1790 to search for the Bounty and the mutineers who had taken her. Wrecked on the return voyage in 1791. After the news of the mutiny on the Bounty reached England on 15 March 1790, the Admiralty deliberated about the best response and eventually dispatched the Pandora to the South Pacific to recover the ‘pirated’ Bounty, capture the mutineers and bring them back to England for trial. The frigate sailed from Portsmouth on 7 November
