FYI These are the codes as requested:
Guernsey GG GGY
Jersey JE JEY
Isle of Man IM IMN
The Channel Islands comprise the Bailiwick of Jersey (population 87,200)
and the Bailiwick of Guernsey (population 62,700), itself comprising the
three separate jurisdictions of Guernsey (with the adjacent inhabited islets
of Herm and Jethou), Alderney and Sark.
The Channel Islands are an aggregated geographical grouping rather than a
political entity and did not form part of the original request to ISO.
