Since the publication of Where First Fleeters Lie
in 1990, the Fellowship has conducted some 40 additional
ceremonies. Dispatched Downunder brings the
record up to date.
The earlier book has been rewritten. All of the
photographs have been retained and more added; all of
the maps have been redrawn and grave locations closely
specified; additional biographical material has been
added; gravestone shapes have been recorded; an Index
has been provided; and the material has been reorganised
as to chronology and locations. Crucially, the author
has enlarged the scope of the earlier book.
Working with the Research Director, John Boyd, an
attempt has been made to record, in detailed Appendices,
the known resting place of each and every man, woman and
child who arrived on the First Fleet.
