The colonies themselves, desirous of freedom from British rule, made a notable attempt at unification called West Indies Federation, which collapsed in 1962. St. Vincent was granted associate statehood status on Oct. 27, 1969; St. Vincent and the Grenadines became the last of the Windward Islands to gain independence on Oct. 27, 1979) Windward Islands (Windward Islands name was also used to refer to a British colony in these islands, existing between 1833 and 1960 and consisting of the islands of Grenada, St. Lucia, Saint Vincent, the Grenadines, Barbados (to 1885, when it became a separate colony), Tobago (to 1889 when it was joined to Trinidad), and Dominica (from 1940, when it was transferred from the Leeward Islands colony to the Windward Islands)) West Indies Federation (Windward Islands Colony, 1833-1958; broke up in 1958 when each island chose to join the new Federation of the West Indies as a separate unit)
