In 1796, the Calcutta merchants Campbell & Clark, sent a boat load of attractive goods, including much needed home and personal wares, and much desired rum, to sell to the isolated people in the new penal colony at Port Jackson (now current day Sydney).
The Sydney Cove foundered and the men were obliged to take refuge on Preservation Island. Some of the crew continued on, in a longboat & on foot, to raise the alarm & affect a rescue. This month we retell the story of their epic journey.
