A piece of history

It was at Vanikoro, located in the “Solomon” Islands archipelago, that the members of the Lapérouse expedition died in 1788.

Commander Dumont d'Urville left Toulon in April 1825 to conduct a new discovery expedition whose road was to pass where the traces of the sinking of the Astrolabe and the Boussole were supposed to be, the two ships of the Lapérouse expedition. It was not until 1826-1827 that a British merchant captain, Peter Dillon, discovered remains of the sinking on Vanikoro Atoll with the Astrolabe's bell; as for the Compass, there is not the slightest trace of it.

Peter Dillon learns from the testimony of natives of Vanikoro Island how two large ships would have been stranded by a night of great storm: one would have sunk right, the other would have stranded on the coral reef and the survivors would have settled on the island. Five or six months later, some of the survivors would leave on board a small boat made from the wreckage of the big ship. Two men remained on the island: one would have died quickly, the other would have left the island with a tribal leader in disgrace.

Dumont d'Urville then goes to Vanikoro and inaugurates on March 14, 1828 a monument of wood and coral in memory of Lapérouse and his crew.

In 2005, the wrecks of the Boussole and the Astrolabe, the two Lapérouse ships were formally identified, as well as the traces of a camp on the ground occupied for several years. In 2008, under the direction of Admiral Battet, leader of the ultimate expedition destined to unravel a 220-year-old mystery, two ships of the French Navy spent a month, from September 15 to October 15, to examine, at using the most sophisticated technical means, all the assumptions about the survival of survivors of the sinking of the Astrolabe.
