This tablet is erected to Rear Admiral Joseph Fyffe. On Jan. 25th, 1865, as commander of a wooden gun boat The Hunchback, he attacked alone two Confederate Iron Clads which retreated up the James.

Admiral Fyffe always held that day in January as an anniversary, wearing his uniform on what he called the great day of his life. He was decorated by Queen Victoria for his historic service in the search for Sir John Franklin who was lost in the Arctic Region in 1856.
