I just completed a seven part series on the Stamps of the French Mandate Area for Syria and Lebanon, which is printed under Middle East Discussion, but can be accessed by clicking on the following links. This post is for reference purposes.

Here is the table of contents:

Part 1 summarizes the historical context and looks at stamps of Ile Rouad (pre French Mandate).
Part 2 looks at the Syrian Arabian Government of 1918-1920 (pre French Mandate).
Part 3 looks at Cilicia (the Armenian part of S. Turkey) (pre French Mandate).
Part 4 looks at the Alaouites area (under French Mandate).
Part 5 looks at Latakia (under French Mandate).
Part 6 looks at Alexandretta (under French Mandate)
Part 7 looks at Hatay (under French-Turkish Mandate)

Stamps of Lebanon and Syria, issued under the French Mandates will NOT be covered in this series. They tend to be collected as part of the individual countries collections, and could be the subject of another research study...should there be some interest.

Here are the links to the seven part series on the stamps of the French Mandate Territories

1. ROUAD https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15216#114350

2.SYRIAN ARABIAN GOV. https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15235#114305

3.CILICIA https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15251#114506

4.ALAOUITES https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15257#114507

5.ALEXANDRETTA https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15279#114735

6.LATAKIA https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15303#114895

7.HATAY https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15379#115573

If there is interest, I plan to issue in the future a similar series on the Stamps of the British Mandate Territories in the Middle east, which will include Palestine, Transjordan(Jordan), Mesopotamia(Iraq), Hejaz & Nejd(Saudi Arabia), Yemen, as well as Aden.

rrr....

An additional section was added at a later time. I have updated the list above 7/17/19) to include it here, in one reference document.
8. FREE FRENCH FORCES (FFF).

I very much enjoyed the series so far. Thanks for publishing! Please do keep on publishing more on this fascinating and not all to well known part of the world. Although I have done profiles on these countries for my own site, I would love to see your take on them! One always keeps learning Happy .

re: Stamps of the French Mandate Territories (in the Middle East)

An additional chapter has just been issued: Stamps of the French Mandate Area for Syria and Lebanon, Part 8. FREE FRENCH FORCES (FFF).

This is an additional chapter, related to the series published earlier, but covering an interesting WW2 related philatelic series of stamps. Free french Forces took over the area from the Vichi government and a series of Military stamps were issued and used between 1941 and 1946.

Here is the link:
