British Commonwealth

Middle East

The Middle East has always had a strong following from stamp collectors, which grows stronger with each passing year. The stamp-issuing history of some of the countries in the area is not that long, Abu Dhabi and Aden being cases in point; but the postal history goes back a very long way indeed and is often fascinating. Egypt's stamps and postal history often reflect the political situation there, and other upheavals are evidenced in the issues of different entities; the overthrow of rulers being not uncommon, always commemorated by special issues. Collectors of overprints on British stamps will find much of interest in Bahrain, British Postal Agencies in Eastern Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.
