The British Indian Ocean Territory was created as a crown colony on 8 November 1865 when it comprised the Chagos Archipelago, previously administered by Mauritius, together with the islands of Aldabra, Farquhar and Desroches, previously administered by Seychelles. The islands are used mainly by the UK and the USA as an airbase occupied by military personnel and a few private contractors.
