Flag of African Slaver
William Henry Wylde (1819-1909) was a superintendent of the Commercial, Consular and Slave Trade departments of the Foreign Office 1869-1880 and was a member of the commission which sat in London, 1865, to revise Slave Trade Instructions. Arthur Parry Eardley Wilmot (1815-1886) was employed in anti-slavery operations off West Africa in 'Harlequin 1850-1853 and as Commodore in 'Rattlesnake' 1862-1866. He was promoted to flag rank in 1870. His naval career ended shortly afterwards when his ship 'Agincourt' struck a rock near the bay of Gibraltar. William Wylde's involvement with anti-slavery operations continued into the 1870's when the British moved to suppress the trade in Zanzibar.
