GlenBricker wrote in his website about HMS Beagle:

'This is a very clever approach to the vignette concept and the ship concept... Adding them together to get the ship AND a story to sell the model. Well done!'

Thank you very much for your comment GlenBricker.

The history of Jemmy Button

On

Jemmy Button, a native Fuegian, was purchased to his family (changed by a button) when he had 15 years old, during the first expedition of HMS Beagle in Tierra del Fuego. Jemmy was taken to England, he learned english and was even presented to the King and the Queen. Years later on the second voyage of the Beagle, Darwin and Fitzroy returned him to his native Woollya. The picture shows the last meeting of Jemmy with his friends of the HMS Beagle, Jemmy was approached in his canoe, which had a small flag and waved them, the Beagle's crew at first did not recognize him, for he was almost naked his hair was long and messy. The Voyage of HMS Beagle was full of stories, science and adventure.


New character: Jemmy Button

Hi everybody:

I present you a new character of the Voyage of the Beagle, the native Fuegian Jemmy Button

Soon a canoe, with a little flag flying, was seen approaching, with one of the men in it washing the paint off his face. This man was poor Jemmy,now a thin, haggard savage, with long disordered hair, and naked, except a bit of blanket round his waist.
