H.M. Brig Supply was launched in 1759 as a Deptford yard transport. In 1786 she was converted to an armed tender. It is in her modified form that she wrote herself into history by arriving ahead of the first convict fleet in Australian waters. She was also the first to sail into Port Jackson. H.M. Brig Supply is now known as the ship from which Australia was founded.
