Bit short[edit]

is there anymore information on this?


Agreed - this neds to be vastly expanded. It's a shamefully undereported page of British history. Sad how negative chapters from all nation's pasts get much more discussion and coverage —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.161.244.202 (talk) 17:51, 14 December 2007 (UTC)


I wrote my undergrad dissertation on British slave trade suppression on the African Coast, you can't reference the dissertation itself as wiki doesn't allow 'own work' which I think it will be classified under. But you can steal the references and narrative elements.

On this copy I haven't done the references yet, so at the bottom of the page there is just a list. Ask me if you see anything quoted and I will be able to give you the reference for it. I am working on adding all the references, but it will take a long time.

expansion is needed at Blockade of Africa#United Kingdom involvement as well. Whizz40 (talk) 09:42, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
