Rule Britannia etc.

Caribbean island in the Grenadines chain of the Windward Islands archipelago and one time British colony. Originally settled by les Frainchs the island was ceded to the British in 1763 before being handed back to the Frogs sixteen years later... and back to us again four years later in 1783.

Apart from a few revolting natives, all was well... ish. However, to keep the locals happy it was decided to let the ungrateful cnuts get on with it and let them have independence from the tyrannical British oppressors in 1979. St Vincent was quite happy to remain in the Commonwealth though - probably something to do with money.

Not to be confused with Cape St Vincent (off Portugal) - when we gave the Spaniards a damn fine thrashing.
