HMS Supply Ship Model

As one of the First Fleet ships, the HMS Supply played a major role in the foundation of Australia. It’s a vital part of British naval history, and was noted for its incredible speed and pace. Indeed, it was rated as the fastest of all the First Fleets ship. It was built by Henry Bird in 1759, and launched at the tail end of the same year. The ship served a long commercial live, first being sold by the Royal Navy in 1792 and then operating as a commercial vehicle until 1806.

About the HMS Supply

Alongside the HMS Sirius, the HMS Supply played a major role in the colonization of Australia. Under the command of Henry Ball and David Blackburn, the ship played a major role throughout the 1700s as a major ship for transport and in the development of Australia as a whole.  She is the fastest ship of the First Fleet, which carried over 1,000 people from Portsmouth, England, to Australia. The 13,000 mile trip was carried out, and eventually arrived on 18th January, 1788.

The ship arrived alongside the others, and was captained by Henry Lidgbird Ball. The captain helped to get the ship, and others, into Botany Bay. From there, the ship became a piece of history: it was the first ship to sail into Port Jackson. There, the anchor was dropped at Sydney Cove, and the setting up of Australia was soon to commence.

The HMS Supply was a major part of the overall colony, until it returned to England in late 1971. Upon doing so, the ship was anchored in Portsmouth. It left a major mark on the whole of the settlement of Australia, though, and is a major part of maritime history as a result. While it may not have endured the high-energy excitement of some of the other First Fleet ships, it’s importance in the safe and prosperous colonization of Australia cannot be ignored.

Shipping & Delivery

We do not offer Free Shipping. It’s important to note that due to ordering from some specific suppliers, our delivery times may vary slightly between products. Since we don’t hold stock ourselves, we do rely on third parties. Occasionally they make mistakes meaning a product we thought was in stock may have just run out — in which case we’ll let you know just as soon as we can and explain your options.

Also, the delivery times are our best estimates only. Many things can delay your order, including freight delays, bad weather, customer location and the local post/courier service. If we do know there is a delay, we’ll email you as soon as we can with the updated delivery time.

Most commercial courier and postal companies we use to send customers' packages will in most instance leave your parcel at the property / address indicated on the order, in a safe, concealed location if it hasn't already been accepted by a resident. At times certain courier drivers may leave a note for the customer with a contact number to call and organise a suitable time for re-delivery or an address of the depot where the package will be left in order for the customer to pick up, if the driver could not find a safe concealed location at the property. This is at the discretion of the courier driver.

In cases where the customers' package/parcel is left at the collection depot and the customer has not picked it up by the due date indicated or the customer has not organised a suitable time for re-delivery, the default course of action is for the item to be sent back to the sender.
