There was a flying boat base during WW2 called Half Die and it was in West Africa. Can anyone shed any light on it?

Search for RAF Bathurst, Gambia ... story.html

Bathurst was planned and divided into districts for specific ethnic groups. ...There was the poorest sector known as Moka or Mocam Town, which was later re-named Half-Die after the Cholera epidemic of 1869 killed many there, was populated by immigrant labourers from the Kombos and up-river areas.
