After a flank attack failed, the order was given to retreat, and the British returned to Duala.
Duala is the headquarters of the merchants and missionaries.
This is quite a pretty little place (Duala) with some jolly houses, typical German of the Schloss villa type; nice inside and out.
Among the Duala and allied negro peoples of Bantu stock dances of markedly erotic character take place at full moon.
Two days after we had stored away the mahogany we anchored off Duala, the capital of the German Cameroons.
About the same time a battalion landing at Bonaberi, across the river from Duala, capitulated after some desultory fighting.
We find him, however, playing a tolerably conspicuous part in the folk-lore of the Duala.
Mujuka, a station about fifty miles from Duala, was occupied by the British a few weeks later.
