BIOT 140526On June 17, 2014, I received this letter from the British Indian Ocean Territory (Chagos Islands). It was dispatched out from Diego Garcia on May 27 and delivered via Singapore.

The stamps are part of a sheet that was issued on October 5, 2009. They commemorate the Scaevola Bush (Scaevola taccada) and the Madagascan Red Fody (Foudia madagascariensis).
