This might be of interest to some.

The diaries and albums of Lt. Thomas Francis Abbott of HMS Shah were recently found, and put up for auction. In 1878 “Shah” visited Pitcairn Island. There are a couple of good photographs taken here. His medals will also be sold.

Thanks to 90th for pointing this out.
