Thistle, John
Ship's Master, HMS 'Investigator'. Had served with Bass in his whaleboat voyages and with Flinders in the 'Norfolk'. Lost with William Taylor and six others at what became Cape Catastrophe on 22 February 1802 in a boat accident. Flinders left a copper plate with details of the tragedy on the mainland and named it Memory Cove.

1799-1804. Ship's cat on 'Investigator' and 'bedfellow' of Flinders. Named after Corporal Trim, a character in Laurence Sterne's 'Tristram Shandy'. Survived the circumnavigation of Australia with Flinders; survived the shipwreck on Wreck Reef with Flinders in 1803; was imprisoned on Ile de France with Flinders. The latter reported that he was 'devoured by the Catophagi of that island' and wrote a touching and humorous tribute to his cat (FLI/11).
