While not a wartime sailor, Trim was no less an adventurer than Unsinkable Sam. In fact, he was the companion of the man Australians consider the founder of their nation: Matthew Flinders.
Trim survived one shipwreck on the Great Barrier Reefs, and was later imprisoned by the French alongside his master, under suspicion of espionage. Unfortunately, Trim went missing during their imprisonment.
Flinders described Trim as “the best and most illustrious of his Race, the most affectionate of friends, faithful of servants, and best of creatures.”
