Benin River, 1894. The bar for BENIN RIVER 1894 was issued to those sailors and marines of H.M.S. "Alecto," "Philomel," "Phoebe," and "Widgeon" who, assisted by Houssas, fought against the chief Nana, the terror of the inhabitants of the Benin River, whom he had plundered for a number of years. The steam launch of the " Alecto," while steaming up the narrow creek leading to the stronghold Brohemie, on August 25th, was fired upon by a concealed battery, the steersman shot dead, and every man on board wounded. In this unfortunate affair Chief Petty Officer Crouch and Leading Stoker Joseph Perkins earned the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal for their exceeding bravery. On September 18th Brohemie was attacked and captured, and the expedition proceeded to another fortified town three miles distant, and this
also was captured, together with Nana's war canoes, which had helped him so much in his depredations. Brohemie was then placed under the Niger Coast Protectorate. Commander Heugh and Lieutenants Hickley and Gore-Browne gained the D.S.O. in these operations.

Tom. Click on link above for copy of TREATY WITH ITSEKIRI OF BENIN RIVER. For some reason JOHN GEORGE HEUGH Initials differ from what written on treaty. It appears to be J.S.Heugh. See photo below..

littlehand,

I think you are correct. The middle initial in his signature does look like an "S". Since his middle name is George, I am at a loss as to why he would sign his name that way unless, he was trying to be fancy with his pen stroke and makes his "g's" look like "s's". Would have to see other examples of his signature.
