Chagos Church

On what was once main street Boddam Island we came across a little stone church. It was the fractured stained glass that caught my eye. The Brits told the Americans that Chagos was only inhabited by a few itinerant workers and 'Tarzans' before clearing away the Chagossian people. They had promised 'sterile' islands as part the deal for the base at Diego Garcia.
