Bounty Mutiny and Pitcairn Island:
What has helped to perpetuate the romantic fascination with the mutiny is the existence of a small community on Pitcairn Island directly descended from the mutineers and their Tahitian wives.

Pitcairn's History:
For two months the Bounty Mutineers combed the Cooks, Tonga and the eastern islands of Fiji for a home; and it was almost in desperation that Christian, recalling or stumbling on Carteret's account, sailed eastwards again for Pitcairn, which he reached on 15 January 1790.

Pitcairn Stamps:
Pitcairn Island's first postage stamps were issued on 15 October 1940, and issues have been sought after by philatelists, investors or those seeking a fascinating hobby, ever since.
