The Station was formed in 1831; it ceased to exist when it was separated into the East Indies Station and the China Station in 1865.[1] Its area covered the Indian Ocean and the coasts of China and its navigable rivers.[2] These responsibilities did not imply territorial claims, although the navy often co-operated with British commercial interests in the above areas.
