    I was in the Delta at a little village named Spiffstown on the Brass River. In the village is a statue dedicated to Brasso Spiff (a former tribal chief). Did a little research and found that there had been a battle there in 1895 when Royal Marines had landed from HMS St George and given the natives a thumping.
