The 1841 Niger expedition

In 1841 a British expedition ascended the River Niger in three specially built iron paddle ships - Albert, Wilberforce and Soudan - to make anti-slavery treaties with the Chiefs along the river. One third of the white participants died of fever. The "invalids" were evacuated from the river mouth to Ascension by Dolphin, in which William Loney was serving as Assistant Surgeon. As revealed by an Admiralty abstract of Loneys services, the survivors presented him with a sword and an epaulette as a mark of thanks.
