Almirante" (Admiral Islands). Previous knowledge of the islands by Arab and Indian traders is possible. Along with the Seychelles, the islands were first claimed by France in 1742. Formal possession was asserted in 1756. By the Treaty of Paris (1814), the islands were passed officially to the British, as a part of Mauritius. In 1909, the Seychelles became a separate colony, thereby including the Amirantes. On November 8, 1965, the United Kingdom split Île Desroches from the Seychelles to become part of the newly created British Indian Ocean Territory. The purpose was to allow the construction of military facilities for the mutual benefit of the United Kingdom and the United States. On June 23, 1976, Île Desroches was returned to the Seychelles as a result of it attaining independence. Desroches has been named after the Chevalier des Roches, the Governor of Mauritius (then Île de France) and Réunion (then Bourbon) from 1767 to 1772. It was explored by the Chevalier de la Billioère in 1771. Poivre was named in 1771 by Chevalier de la Biollière after Pierre Poivre, the famous "Peter Pepper" and Intendant of Mauritius (then Île de France) and Réunion (then Bourbon) from 1769 to 1772. * 20 August - The Israeli government (Israel) informs the United Nations Special Committee on Apartheid that it has taken all necessary steps to ensure that no arms, ammunition, or strategic materials may be exported from Israel to South Africa in any form, directly or indirectly ** Mauritius bars South Africa and Portugal from her sea and airports Mahanagar Telephone Mauritius Limited (MTML) MTNL has set up its 100% subsidiary, Mahanagar Telephone Mauritius Limited.

Norwegian Sten In German-occupied Norway the resistance, under the leadership of Bror With, created a large number of Sten guns from scratch, mainly to equip members of the underground army ''Milorg''. In his autobiography, Norwegian resistance fighter Max Manus frequently mentions the Sten Manus, Max, ''Part I, Det vil helst gå godt'' (It'd best be all right); ''Part II, Det blir alvor'' (It gets serious), Familieforlaget (1946), ISBN 978-82-8214-043-0 as one of the weapons his groups of commandos and resistance fighters used effectively against German troops. It is also becoming increasingly common in the UK for some pub (Public house)s to use satellite decoder cards from Greece, Norway, Poland or the Arab world to receive satellite TV broadcasting live English football matches from those countries. Alternatively, they may use cards which allow pirate decryption of scrambled signals. Such cards are typically much cheaper than the cards available in the UK from Sky (who charge extra fees for public showing licenses). However, Sky has taken civil and criminal action against some who do this. Two recent cases involving grey cards have been referred to the European Court of Justice. http: curia.europa.eu jurisp cgi-bin form.pl?lang en&Submit Submit&numaff C-403%2F08 Case C-403 08 The Football Association Premier League Ltd v QC Leisure http: curia.europa.eu jurisp cgi-bin form.pl?lang en&Submit Submit&numaff C-429%2F08 Case C-429 08 Karen Murphy v Media Protection Services Ltd The suppliers of grey cards and Karen Murphy have won their cases at the European Court of Justice. The judges have ruled that right holders cannot license their content on a exclusive territorial basis as it breaches EU Law on competition and free movement of goods and services. However, whilst this ruling allows domestic viewers to subscribe to foreign satellite services, pubs may still need permission from right holders such as the Premier League to broadcast content. This is because certain elements of the broadcast such as branding are copyrighted. The matter now rests on the High Court to incorporate the ruling into UK Law. C-403 08 - 2011-10-04 - Football Association Premier League and Others The first convoy sailed from the United Kingdom in August 1941, two months after the German invasion of Russia. By the spring of 1942, 12 more convoys had made the passage with the loss of only one out of 103 ships. From then on, the threat of attacks on the convoys increased, with the Germans preparing to stop the flow of supplies to Russia with every means at their disposal, including the basing of heavy ships in Norway. In 1941, the ''Kriegsmarine'' had already begun concentrating its strength in Norway in winter, both to prevent a repeated British attack (Norwegian Campaign), and to obstruct Allied supply lines to Russia.
