Norfolk Island ... wasn't that used by us Brits as a particularly nasty penal colony for the most difficult of those transported? And subsequently rehabilitated as a place of great natural beauty - which I'm sure it is.

Malaya-Perlis #1-2 issued December 1, 1948. The Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909 forced Siam to relinquish its southern Malay vassal states of Kelantan, Trengganu, Kedah, and Perlis to Great Britain. The area was briefly returned to Siam by Japan in WW 2.

It must not have been a big event if they used an omnibus issue.

FYI: The United Nations Temporary Executive Authority (UNTEA) and the United Nations Security Force (UNSF) in West New Guinea was established during October 1962 in accord with General Assembly Resolution 1752 as requested in Article two of the New York Agreement to administer the former Dutch New Guinea. The UNTEA administration ended on 1 May 1963.


I wondered what UNTEA was....

Ryukyu Islands Sc 1a/SG 1A issued 1st July 1948. The Ryukyu Islands were part of Japan until captured by US forces during WW2. They reverted to Japan in May 1972.

I lived on Okinawa during the reversion period that involved voltage (mains) changes and switching from right to left side drive came later. One significant aspect was that Japan did not allow English broadcasting owned stations owned by foreign companies so the only commercial station (KSBK) had to switch to call letters (JORO). a slur, and soon shut down. The AFRTS/FEN (military run radio and TV) had to drop one AM station. The Japan forbid imports of many goods (like meat from Australia).

Malaya-Perlis #1-2 issued December 1, 1948. The Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909 forced Siam to relinquish its southern Malay vassal states of Kelantan, Trengganu, Kedah, and Perlis to Great Britain. The area was briefly returned to Siam by Japan in WW 2.

It must not have been a big event if they used an omnibus issue.

Angore, I always have to laugh when I see a stamp from Bahawalpur. As I can't pronounce it, I always say (to myself) "belly-whopper"!

FYI: The United Nations Temporary Executive Authority (UNTEA) and the United Nations Security Force (UNSF) in West New Guinea was established during October 1962 in accord with General Assembly Resolution 1752 as requested in Article two of the New York Agreement to administer the former Dutch New Guinea. The UNTEA administration ended on 1 May 1963.


I wondered what UNTEA was....

Ryukyu Islands Sc 1a/SG 1A issued 1st July 1948. The Ryukyu Islands were part of Japan until captured by US forces during WW2. They reverted to Japan in May 1972.

I lived on Okinawa during the reversion period that involved voltage (mains) changes and switching from right to left side drive came later. One significant aspect was that Japan did not allow English broadcasting owned stations owned by foreign companies so the only commercial station (KSBK) had to switch to call letters (JORO). a slur, and soon shut down. The AFRTS/FEN (military run radio and TV) had to drop one AM station. The Japan forbid imports of many goods (like meat from Australia).
