Sierra Leone cloths of prodigious lengths, known as kpokpo, would hang at important occasions such as state ceremonies and funerals as striking displays of wealth and social position. These large strip-woven, cotton cloths required specialized production—they were typically commissioned for an event and weavers were sometimes retained by chiefs.

Flight Officer Johnny Smythe, from Sierra Leone, enlisted in the RAF in 1939.  He was one of four out of a class of 90, to complete the tough training to be a Navigator. On his 28th bomber mission, in November 1943, he was wounded, shot down, and captured by Germans who could not believe they were looking at a Black officer. In Stalag Luft One, Smythe worked on the escape committee, but couldn’t break out himself: "I don’t think a six-foot-five black man would’ve got very far in Pomerania."
