Notes
  • 156 x 109 mm. Showing a large group of chiefs and villagers at Bambaia, about 25 miles by water from Bonthe (see following two prints). Identified beneath the print are the Sokong, the Prime Minister and 'a principal Kruba' (military leader) with the following remark: 'all of whom were tried for murder and hanged at Bonthe, Sherbro, 7th November 1898'. Governor Cardew's decision to levy the Hut tax in 1898 led to a confrontation between Protectorate forces and the men of Chief Bureh of Kasse which spread to neighbouring areas, culminating in a general rising on April 27. Alldridge himself (who steadfastly maintained that the reasons for the war were the power of secret societies allied to a desire to continue the trade in slaves) took part in several punitive expeditions during the campaign, on one of which he destroyed the town of Bambaia (July 26 1898) after finding it deserted while looking for the chiefs photographed here. 96 participants in the rising were later hanged. Photograph taken in the 1890s.
