Arthur Phillip of the Royal Navy and first governor of New South Wales – we all know who he was but what do we actually know about him?
Phillip lived to the age of seventy-six, with just a mere four years ten months and fifteen days in Sydney Town and the young colony of New South Wales – how did he spend the other years of his life?
What experiences shaped the man destined to command a small fleet of ships, historically known as the First Fleet, and act as guardian to hundreds of convicts in 1787/1788?
Lyn M. Fergusson’s revealing biography Admiral Arthur Phillip – The Man fills in the gaps.
