Anheuser-Busch delivering drinking water to Florida, Georgia Oct
Hanuman, leader of the Vanaras talking apes journeys miles south of India to a place he called Lanka, which is approximately the location of Diego Garcia. The great Austronesian diaspora is in full swing. They also traveled the South Equatorial Current of the Indian Ocean, which flows from east to west between the equator and 10 degrees south, reaching Madagascar around this time.
Chances are they passed near Diego Garcia at 7 degrees south , perhaps even landing, but did not establish permanent settlements. Clusters of islands, which possibly represent the Chagos Archipelago, appear on Alberto Catino's world map. This is the first time Diego is shown or mentioned anywhere in the world. He takes his fleet across the Indian Ocean and at about six degrees south finds himself in extremely shallow water and in danger of running aground. He spent three days picking through the reefs probably the Great Chagos Bank before reaching the safety of the open ocean.
His tale of near disaster keeps mariners from entering the area for over years. Lancaster's fleet was the very first trading expedition of the British East India Company earlier trips - by Lancaster and Michelbourne - being essentially pirate raids. He described it as being ten or twelve leagues long and being covered with coconut trees, with fish and birds abundant.
Ortelio ex eodem Delineatus" which shows some islands about where Diego Garcia lies today. This was also the first time the F word was used on the island, when a sailor undoubtably said "How long did you say we are staying on this fing island? The name Diego Garcia becomes standard on maps of the time. The crew, however, fails to name one single island feature for Parliamentary Speaker Pitt. He later writes, 'A large number of vessels could anchor here in safety.
The island has a great many coconut trees and is covered with jungle. Many of the trees, such as the "bios blanc" make good firewood. It is possible to dig a well into the coral of which the island is mainly formed, but the water so obtained is brackish, and could in all probability cause sickness.
French Navy Captain du Roslan arrives at Diego Garcia, after plotting the postion of other Chagos islands, thus establishing Diego's relative location for the first time everything was relative in those days.
For several years the British in Bombay had been dispatching ships to explore the Chagos Archepelago, but the SWIFT was the first to find any of the islands since The British ship DRAKE visits, under the command of Captain Adam Sheriff, maps the lagoon entrance, and left sheep, goats and pigs to populate the island no sailors apparently being particularly interested as provisions for future generations of maroons.
The French Governor of Mauritius grants Monsieur Dupuit de la Faye a 'consession' for development of the entire island, but he fails to go there or colonize the island. Some 'straggling Frenchmen' build a dozen or so huts on the island.
The purpose of the colony is to establish a 'victualing station' and six shiploads of topsoil are imported from India in which to grow food plants. Richard Thomas Price is in charge of the colony and in command of four officers, 41 craftsmen and 69 servants.
Military command is assigned to Captain John Sartorius of the Engineers, who is in charge of all land and marine surveys. He has under his command eight officers and soldiers, mainly Sepoys Indian native infantry and Lascars Indian native artillerymen. Upon arrival of the British fleet, the staggling Frenchmen pack up a boat and sail away to report the invasion to the Governor of Mauritius, Vicomte de Souillac.
As Lord Cornwallis, loser at Yorktown in was by this time the Dictator of India on behalf of the King and the British East India Company , he must have had to bite his lip every time he saw it over one of his ships or factories At any rate, the flag of the first official colonists of Diego Garcia was, in fact, an American flag! Lieutenant Archibald Blair of the East Indian Company surveys the island and produces the first reliable map of the island.
He also names Eclipse future site of Downtown Diego Garcia and Observatory Points, which were previously called 'the two teats', no doubt by the staggling, sex-starved Frenchmen. The British experiment in growing food plants on Diego is a failure, especially considering that they have an extra mouths to feed from the ATLAS , and they pack up and sail away, having learned, as thousands of others have since, that a 6 month tour of duty on Diego is long enough.
The French leave a 'stone of ownership' on the island proclaiming that it really, after all, belonged to France. Then they sail away, there being no food on the island to speak of.
Basically, he wanted to try again. As with other proposals by Dalrymple, who was eternally whining that Captain Cook instead of Dalrymple had been chosen to search for and find Australia in , his suggestions were ignored. Except by Lord Cornwallis, now in charge of British India, and who previously had lost the American Colonies by underestimating his enemy. Oh, and by overestimating the staying power of the French Fleet read your history of Yorktown for details.
Lord Cornwallis sends out Lieutenant Morrsom of the Royal Navy to survey the island and determine its suitability as a staging base for fleets en route to India. Morrsom concludes that it is, but Cornwallis gets interested in other things, and the British forget about Diego Garcia for a decade or two.
The lepers ate sea turtles, primarily, since turtle meat was believed to cure the disease. A British merchant ship stops by, and sends two crew members ashore to talk with the inhabitants.
They reported that the island was populated by '8 or 10' lepers. The captain of the ship refuses to allow the crewmembers back aboard, and sails away, leaving them marooned with the lepers.
He also brings the first black slaves to the island. The little factory ships coconuts to Mauritius to be processed into oil, and also ships out salted fish, rope made from coconut fiber, and exports Sea Turds Sea Cucumbers to China, where they are considered a great delicacy. She then sailed to the Seychelles and sank the French Corvette Fleche, which had just marooned some banished Frenchmen on those islands. The captain-general of Maurituis, a certain De Caen, gives M.
Chepe a 'concession' to exploit the eastern part of the atoll as a coconut oil factory. De Caen changes his mind, and forbids processing coconut oil on Diego Garcia, out of a fear that the British would come and steal it. He orders coconuts to be sent to Mauritius for processing. The British, during one of the 'Napoleonic Wars' capture Mauritius and its 'lesser dependencies' including Diego Garcia , thus effectively stealing the coconut oil, just as De Caen feared, just in a more dramatic way.
A severe earthquake on the island shakes the coconut crabs right out of the trees. France was forced to return to the borders of England was granted the French colonies of Tobago, St.
Lucia, and Mauritius and thus it's "lesser dependencies" including Diego Garcia. April 8 - November 26, At the time, the US had 21 states, Illinois having been admitted in December, He is a Frenchman named Le Camus, and must have found the assignment very existential.
Restore peace between the lepers and slaves who had been at war with each other for several years ; Act as pilot for any vessel entering Diego Garcia, except for slavers, which were to be denied access; Stop ships from dumping ballast in the main channels; Build a hospital for the lepers on Middle Island; and, Report any lawlessness by visiting ships' crews.
Le Camus actually did a pretty good job, although he never builds the hospital. Horat, arrive and produce the first completely accurate map of Diego for the Mauritius Colonial Government. They were accompanied by Mr. Werner, who writes a report giving information necessary for the navigation of ships entering the lagoon. Werner reports that the island is divided into four plantations: Cayeux's, Cayeux's brother's, and Bleved and Patee's. Werner also points out that the island was of no further use for a leper colony, because they had eaten all the turtles.
Le Camus asks to be paid for the five years he spent on Diego as a colonial official. The Governor of Mauritius is shocked by this outrageous request, and refuses. Le Camus' suit is settled when the Governor takes Laportaire's concession of 2, acres and gives it to Le Camus. There is nothing recorded about Laportaire's response to the confiscation, but I'll bet he was P! Ex-slaves are 'apprenticed' to their former masters for six years before being set completely free in Thus ended the year history of slavery on Diego Garcia.
The lepers from Diego Garcia and a few of the other occupied islands in the Chagos are taken by ship to Ile Curieuse in the Seychelles to be put with other lepers in a real colony with people there to look after them medically, etc. According to inexact information, the black lepers were notably peaceful and why not, until the previous year they were slaves, and were still indentured, and therefore "knew their place".
On the other hand, the white lepers caused a lot of trouble on the ship. Two of the lepers from DG didn't want to be transfered, and escaped in a canoe, and apparently made it to Danger Island in the Chagos, where the transporting ship couldn't 'rescue' them because there was no anchorage.
This is apparently the first account of people not wanting the leave Diego Garcia. He plants 30 breadfruit trees. He also is the first to report that there were cats and chickens on the island. During the Years to " - there are at least three references to Diego Garcia in Chapter 1 alone.
From Steve Forsberg's thesis: On September 18, , he found a bottle with a note in it on the shore. It was signed by F. Montgomery, 4th Regiment and also mentioned Captain Twopenny of the 73rd Highlanders. They had been aboard a ship traveling from Plymouth, England to Ceylon when they threw their message in a bottle overboard, at a point more than 1, miles from Diego Garcia and two years earlier.
He also reported that things really weren't all that pleasant for the former slaves, but that crime was nearly non-existant, a condition he attributes to the impossibility of obtaining booze on the island. Perhaps this was why he left after just two days on the island.
As a result of Anderson's report, donkeys are brought ashore because British law forbade using humans - i. The descendants of those donkeys remain on the island to this day. It was noted that by this time seals and walrus were almost entirely gone from the island The article is not too clear about when it was referring to Diego Garcia in particular or another of the Chagos Chain.
The next set of colonial officials to visit, Lt. Caldwell, arrive and take a census. They reported a population of men, 39 women, and 41 children and donkeys.
Working together the various species produced 25, gallons of coconut oil that year. Bishop Vincent, the leader of the Anglican Church in Mauritius, arrives to convert the heathen and the Catholics to the Church of England.
He noted that the island had a large population of "Malabars" from the Indian subcontinent. The bishop decides not to stay, but encourages other missionaries to try. None heed the call for at least the next 14 years. The Meteorological Society recommended to the Governor for the establishment of a central observatory for hourly or two-hourly observations day and night together with a number of subsidiary observations at Rodrigues, St.
Brandon, Agalega, Diego Garcia and Seychelles. He reports the population of the island was men, 45 women, and 46 children , of whom 20 are Europeans. The Main House and several other of the main buildings at the plantation at East Point are constructed. James Spurs, 'an enlighened, despotic but benevolent man', becomes manager of the plantation at East Point a position he holds until He establishes very strict regulations concerning alcohol consumption, and forbids killing sea birds, sea turtles, or coconut crabs.
An outbreak of cholera hits the plantation at Point Marianne, but there are no deaths. Patients are treated in the hospital there, which is made from the deck house of the ship SHANNON , which had wrecked there several years before. Parkenham Brooks, the first colonial official to visit since , fined the Manager of the East Point Plantation, James Spurs, for imprisoning three 'labourers' without sufficient cause. He also fined an under-manager at Point Marianne for striking a labourer.
Janvier, a 'Malagash' someone from Madigascar Voodoo Witch Doctor, is charged with killing a woman giving birth to twins, and the twins, and is sent to Mauritius for trial, where he is found not guilty. A Roman Catholic Priest visits the island, and then leaves it to the heathens. Or perhaps he recognized the prior claim made on the islanders' souls by the Anglicans. This one is about when "divers were REAL men.
Lambert was a legend in his time, among other things he was the first to use "rebreathing" gear. The following is part of a short newspaper 'filler' article that was published in the U. He had been sent to the island of Diego Garcia to fbr copper sheets on a coal bunk that had been fouled by a steamer, and was annoyed during his operations by the same shark for nearly a week. One day Lambert signaled to his I attendants for a big sheath knife and a looped rope.
The diver brought home the shark's back- as a trophy. Eventually, it moves its operations to Middle and East Islands. James Spurs goes to work for the Orient and Pacific, and a M. LeConte takes the job of manager at East Point. Inhabitants are shocked to hear loud booming noises. The noise is from the explosion of the volcano Krakatoa near Java, over 1, miles to the east. When the sonic wave reaches Rodrigues island, miles west of Diego, the Police Chief reports hearing 'heavy gunfire to the east.
However, so many of the laborers of the Orient Company were absent and refused to do extra work even with pay. James Spurs had to hire colliers from the rival Lund and Company.
The plantations of the islands in the Chagos Archipelago combine into one company called the 'Societe Huiliere de Diego et Peros'. The effect on Diego Garcia was to close the estate headquarters at Minni Minni and combine that plantation with the one at East Point.
Point Marianne remained as a separate community headed by a sub-manager. Laborers at the East Point Plantation, armed with knives and clubs, stage an insurrection, which is put down by the M. LeConte by brandishing his revolver. LeComte blames the 45 men working for Lund and Company for the troubles, since they are "without any women".
Lucas, one of the trailblazers of phycology, spends two days paddling around the lagoon observing the seaweeds during coaling of the SS CUZCO. He gets so engrossed, that the ship's manager and Lucas' wife have to paddle out and haul him back to the ship just in time to sail away to Australia.
Fluent in English, French, and German, Lucas later taught himself to read Russian, primarily to understand some papers about lizards written in that language.
A life-long scientist and teacher, he authored the seminal 2-volume work "The Seaweeds of South Australia. A ship carrying Japanese Moslem pilgrims destined for Mecca the Haj pilgrimage stops off at Eclipse Point, where they get out and wander around for a while. A child died the next day from that disease, but Mr. LeConte refused to allow it to be buried ashore for fear that the disease would spread on the island. He sobers up two days later, and sails away.
No one else in the history of Diego Garcia ever got quite that drunk. Except maybe one or two people once or twice. Another Roman Catholic Priest visits the island, and leaves.
Vereker, carries out a detailed survey of the lagoon. Rambler Bay, on the northeast side of the lagoon is named for this ship. This is the first thorough hydrographic survey of the northern lagoon, and along with Moresby's more general survey of the southern lagoon, remains the basis of the charts today.
Butler is appointed Constable Sergeant, and arrives with six Constables to establish law and order, primarily to prevent a recurrance of Captain Raymondesque shennannigans. Louis Fidele is imprisoned for practicing witchcraft in the cemetary at East Point. This witchcraft was intended to ensure that the ghosts would not rise up to haunt the living, which was a very real fear of the workers on the island.
Bourne spends four months on the island studying geology and the bird and plant life. Bourne later teaches as Oxford, and lectures on his discoveries. The coaling stations on the island close, their rowdy employees depart, and steamships stop stopping. No longer needed to police the wild crowds of imported Somalis, Indians and Chinese manning the stations, Mister Butler and his Constables are withdrawn, and no other police force was set up for the next 85 years. The island is left to the workers and European overseers of the plantations.
The first church is built at the East Point Plantation. The process of drying coconut meat to make copra is introduced, and the production of oil for export ceases. Instead the copra is shipped to Mauritius for processing into oil. Stanley Gardiner, studies the island's geomorphology, and the marine and land plants and animals.
The Expedition was investigating the biological relationships between the Seychelles, Mascarenes and Chagos groups and tried to find evidence for former land connections between the islands. The discoveries of this expedition established that the granitic Seychelles islands are continental fragments of Gondwana, isolated from India and Madagascar 65 million years ago while the other islands are volcanic in origin, and that the Seychelles had an 'archaic' fauna, while the Mascarenes, Amirantes, Aldabra and Chagos Island groups have similar 'immigrant' taxa that traveled to the islands on the predominant marine currents.
Doctor Powell arrives as head of a medical mission. He finds, literally, shitty sanitation conditions regarding latrines, and that safe water supply practices are ignored by 'both labor and management' and that they better clean up their act.
He also proposes that the islanders be forbidden to take wine away from the village shop, and that they be required to drink it in the bar. He blames much of the island's crime and disease on the quality of the wine.
The crew also fixed the plantation manager's motor launch, and was paid with a pig, fresh fish, and some fruit. Here is a first-hand account of her visit written by her executive officer: In May , Mr. Henry Bigara died shortly after a person named Fidelia had committed suicide. He had many friends in Mauritius and the local press supported him.
In addition there were rumors of jury tampering. He died shortly thereafter. The Chapel at East Point is constructed, the previous one built in having been crushed by a falling palm tree. He was especially offended by the continuing practice of witchcraft in the cemetaries, especially 'orgies, lascivious dancing, immoral getups, and revolting acts committed on the corpses.
She services the island until They hid in the jungle for some days, eventually being discovered by some plantation workers, and turned over to the plantation manager. Just in time for WWII. It then returned to California, whence it had departed a year or so earlier.
World War II intervened before this service could be inagurated. The British set up a Convoy Route dubbed "X. The route is used throughout World War II. On charter from Singapore Straits Steamship Company, she was still crewed by the civilian crew, with a small detachment of RAF personnel aboard. In charge of the installation is Scotsman Captain J. When relieved, they sailed for the Seychelles to install other, well, installations. Their quarters were at a village called "Noroit" on the northwest corner of the island - approximately where the GPS Site is today.
Forsberg provides this alternative regarding the guns: The guns had a range of approximately 14, yards with a nominal muzzle velocity of 2, feet per second.
There were 99 feet and a A Vickers clock and naval Dumaresq were used for fire control. His references certainly appear to be more accurate than mine! The road ran along the lagoon shore-line, and included concrete bridges over the barachois at the South end of the lagoon. After her visit to DG, she cruises to Penang, and then back to Japan. The British set up a Convoy Route dubbed "C.
It is the reciprocal of X. Although at least four rafts with at least 16 men of the man crew survived the sinking, only two men, Thakar Miah and Mohamed Aftab, survived to reach shore in Malaysia four and a half months later.
They were captured by the Japanese but survived the war. She was carrying 5, tons of ammunition and blew up after being struck by a single torpedo with the loss of all 69 crewmen and six passengers. During her service escorting convoys from , not one ship in any convoy was lost to submarines, which was quite a feat in those days. Here's why the Catalinas were on Diego Garcia. There were passengers and crew on board, and 79 are lost and the I-8 took 1 crewmember and 10 passengers prisoner. The I-8 surfaces, shells the lifeboats, and takes 99 survivors aboard, where Captain Commander, posthumously Rear Admiral Ariizumi has them searched, bound and questioned.
Then, in a three-hour massacre, most of the survivors are beaten, stabbed, or shot. Some are made to run a gauntlet of crewmen with knives and pipes. When the I-8's radar picks up an aircraft, Ariizumi submerges and leaves the bound Americans on deck to drown, but some of the survivors, return to the sinking NICOLET and launch rafts. This isn't the first time Ariizumi killed prisoners. He had the crew kill them on the I-8's deck with swords and by clubbing them with wrenches, and ordered machine-gunners to fire on any survivors who leap overboard.
The I-8 was also famous for making a trip to Brest France in Ariizumi was promoted and reassigned in late The Japanese claim he shot himself after Japan's surrender, but his body was never seen be the allies.
Just doesn't seem like enough to me. September - October An epidemic of dengue fever strikes the island. Most of the RAF personnel came down with the disease, and several islanders died of it. It would be another seven years before aircraft were seen in the skies over Diego. The RAF Meterological Station is turned over to the colonial government of Mauritius, and is operated continuously until hours, August 2, Royal Marine Captain J. Alan Thompson, a Scotsman, publishes the first of three semi-autobiographical, but mostly fictional, accounts of life on the island during World War II, "Only the Sun Remembers".
He published the others in and He waded ashore and was surprised to discover French speaking inhabitants. Six weeks after the wreck, he was given a ride to Mauritius on board a British Corvette. Here's what Bernard wrote about sailing in the southern seas: They eat your liver out and suck your marrow and brutalize you. I am going where you can tie up a boat where you want and the sun is free, and so is the air you breathe and the sea where you swim and you can roast yourself on a coral reef Enrollment is open to all.
However there were over children under the age of 12 on the island at the time, and the school had 30 desks and chairs. At the time, anyone over the age of 12 was required to work full time on the Plantation, and were not considered "children".
An RAF survey crew arrives in a Sunderland flying boat and surveys Eclipse Point the northwest tip for a possible 6, foot airstrip. The Cattle Egret is introduced to Diego from the Seychelles in an attempt to control the fly and insect population of the island. It quickly becomes a common sight and by it is a major pest on the airfield.
When he goes home, he starts writing the book "Limuria: The Lesser Dependencies of Mauritius" about the place. He noted that chickens were so numerous that the going rate for a broiler was three English cigarettes. Morrow, a student of Daniel Merriman's interested in billfishes, as the ichthyologist. Morrow worked as the unofficial curator of fishes at the Peabody from until Orian visits Diego Garcia and publishes his report on the coconut industry there in the Review of Mauritian Agriculture.
The Chagos Agalega Company of the Seychells buys all the coconut plantations in the islands from the previous owners, the Societe Huiliere de Diego et Peros a Mauritian company financed by a French firm based in Paris. Chagos Agalega stands for the Chagos archipelago of which Diego Garcia is the largest island and Agalega Island, which is part of the island nation of the Seychells.
It might be significant that one of the members of the survey team was Mr. Vance Vaughn, who was from the U. Nebraska Avenue was the headquarters of Naval Security Group, the arm of the navy tasked with signals intelligence.
More overtly, the team included two enlisted men who were tasked with setting up a radio unit for tests. Young and Radioman Chief M. In payment for the detached islands, and to resettle the inhabitants, Mauritius was given 3 million pounds, and the Seychelles was given a new airport on Mahe.
Great Britain and the United States execute an "exchange of notes" making the island available for the defense needs of both countries for the next 50 years, with an option for 20 more. It empowered the Commissioner to acquire land compulsorily for a public purpose, notably and explicitly the defence purposes of the UK or Commonwealth or other foreign countries in agreement with the UK.
June - July Roe, conducts a thorough hydrographic survey of the lagoon and surrounding ocean. Jean Cole publishes her non-fiction account of her family's 11, mile journey from Mombassa to New Zealand with a stop at Diego Garcia. American geodesists and technicians, led by Kirby Crawford, operates a satellite triangulation station, with living quarters, just east of the East Point plantation for the US Department of Defense and the US Coast and Geodetic Survey.
The team photographs balloon satellites along with stars in the background at night with a large astronomic camera. They also observe a precise astronomic position by conventional survey methods and establish a precise triangulation network throughout the island. This was the first program to accurately measure the size and shape of the earth, which they found is not exactly round. But it isn't exactly flat either. She was painted white specifically for this peacetime deployment to an allied island.
March through June, The SEABEES and the men of Underwater Demolition Team 12 remove underwater obstacles, install buoys, mark anchorages, clear jungle and set up a tent city, and began laying down an airfield. The ships act as a self-sufficient home base for the troops ashore, as well as make numerous trips to the Philippines, Cocos, and Mauritius ferrying more men and equipment to the island through June, The same ship is spotted on 24 June, and again on 30 June.
This ship or one like her was spotted routinely through October Many thanks to Dan Urish, Island Commander, for the drawing and information. The fighters make several low, high speed passes over Reindeer Station, so fast that no one on the island can positively identify the nationality, generating years of reports of Russian MiGs spying on the SEABEES the Russians had no aircraft carriers or aerial refueling capability to get MiGs to DG from their nearest base in Berbera, Somalia, even if they wanted to.
The first runway on the island is completed, all 3, feet of it, four days ahead of schedule. Drawing generously donated by Dan Urish. Many thanks to Commander Urish for the photo. According to testimony the UK High Court in , the Governor of the Seychelles ordered the killing of about stray and abandoned dogs, which had taken over the east side of Diego Garcia as the population of Ilois shrank. According to the then-manager of the Plantation on Diego Garcia, they were shot, poisoned, and gassed using vehicle exhaust.
Navy personnel carried out the killings. Naval Weather Service Environmental Detachment NWSED is established in , assuming meteorological responsibilities from the Mauritius Meteorological Service under the provision that weather data from Diego Garcia be made available to their country.
He stays two years! David Stoddart, and J. Taylor publish the seminal collection of articles on Diego Garcia's geography and ecology in the Smithsonian Institute's Atoll Research Bulletin, volume For a copy in.
It's huge - NMCB arrives to continue construction activities. A Taiwanese firm is given a contract to dredge the Main Channel and a ship Turning Basin within the lagoon. This is the first regular police presence on the island since The British government gives the now-independent government of Mauritius , pounds to resettle the black Ilois. The Hindu-majority Mauritian government promptly makes the money disappear for several years and the Ilois who later change their name to 'Chagossians' are ghetto-ized into the worst slums of Port Louis.
The squadron is equipped with A-6E Corsairs. Morris eventually orchestrates the Revolution which establishes the Provisional Peoples' Democratic Republic of Diego Garcia, and assumes the exalted position of President for Life, a title he holds until this day. The Brits, swilling Courage Ale, defeated the devotees of Swan Lager by an unspecified, but impressive, score.
The mission on the night of April is unsuccessful, but provides the first positive proof of the value of Diego Garcia's strategic position in defending American national interests.
