    "In 1969, with the establishment of Jersey Post, UK postage stamps ceased to be valid in the Crown dependencies. The Bailiwicks had previously produced stamps and operated independent postal systems during the 1940–1945 Occupation of the Channel Islands.

    Jersey Post has an established and active philatelic bureau which issues new designs on a regular basis.

    In 2012, Jersey Post produced a special limited edition stamp for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, featuring a real diamond. The sheets sold out by pre-ordering before their February 2012 publication. "

  • About Postal Corporation of Kenya

    The Postal history in Kenya dates from the early years of the 17th century. A Portuguese governor was installed in Mombasa in 1592 and official correspondence between the town and the outside world has been recorded from 1610 onwards, carried by ship to Arabia and India and transmitted to Europe by the overland route. Early letters from the interior of Kenya date from about 1848 when the missionaries sent their correspondence by native runners to the Coast for onward transmission.

    By 1877 some letters from Coast were being taken north from Lamu to Aden by ships of the British steam navigation Company, although the bulk of mail was being transmitted via Zanzibar. A system of mail-runners was developed and expanded by the British East Africa Association, while individual traders and concessionaries organized their own service. That enjoyed the use of distinctive postage stamps in 1889-90.

    A regular postal service in British East Africa was introduced in May 1890 and post offices opened in Mombasa and the island of Lamu. Two years later offices were opened at Malindi and Wasini and by 1897 an office was to open at Kilindini, necessitated by the construction of the railway. On 1st July 1895 control of the territory in British East Africa was transferred from the company to the imperial government. The Postmaster of Mombasa was responsible for running the postal service in the territory and in 1901 the Postal Services of British East Africa and Uganda were amalgamated.

  • On 10 January 1979, the DK (Democratic Kampuchea) army had been routed and the Vietnamese troops had captured the capital Phnom Penh. The KPRC (Kampuchean People's Revolutionary Council) proclaimed that the new official name of Cambodia was the People's Republic of Kampuchea (PRK) (aka: Khmer Republic ; aj). The new administration ... a pro-Soviet regime supported by a substantial Vietnamese military force. . . notified the United Nations Security Council that it was the sole legitimate government of the Cambodian people. . . Despite the Vietnam-sponsored invasion and control, and the loss of independence that went along with it, the new order was welcomed by almost the entire Cambodian population due to the Khmer Rouge brutality.

    The "Kampuchean (or Khmer) People's Revolutionary Party" (KPRP) was the sole ruling party in Cambodia from the foundation of the pro-Vietnam republic in 1979, as well as during the transitional times under the SOC (State of Cambodia) in 1991, when it was renamed the Cambodian People's Party (CPP) at the beginning of the UN-sponsored peace and reconciliation process. . . .

    Kuwait Dealers Directory
  • Kuwait has a very old history of postal services, which began in 1775 and were partly organized in 1879 (with a) decision in 1904 by the British political officer to have a post office in Kuwait - which opened on January 1st, 1915.

    "As was the practice in those days, British India postage stamps were also used in Kuwait, which included King George V, single star water-mark issues of 1911-1922, and Indian postal stationary items, both without overprints. The cancellers used in the beginning, however, spelt the name of the country as Koweit.

    In 1923, British India stamps of George V overprinted KUWAIT were sold, of values ½ anna to 10 rupees. Following introduction of air mail services, India issued a set of six airmail stamps, of these the 2a, 3a, 4s, and 6a values were overprinted in 1933 for use in Kuwait.

    After the partition of British India in August 1947, the post office remained under the Karachi circle, but of the Pakistan postal department. In April 1948 the Kuwait post office, like its counterparts in the other Gulf states came under the British Postal Agency, and the sub-post office was raised to the status of the main post office. The Kuwait post office now began to use overprinted and surcharged great Britain stamps of King George VI. The overprint read “KUWAIT” and the values were surcharged in annas and rupees of the Indian currency.

    Kuwait set up an independent postal system in 1958, when it also issued a set of three stamps of 5np, 10np, and 40np (naye paise of the Indian currency) values of February 1st. These were Kuwait’s first "local" issues for use on internal mail. On the same day the first state post office was opened at Safat. The British Postal Agency’s post offices continued to function. Great Britain stamps were withdrawn on February 1st, 1959, on which date the Kuwait government took over its entire postal service.

    The new administration declared the "local" stamps valid for external use, and issued its own set of 13 stamps valued up-to ten rupees. The British types of cancels were discontinued and in their place bilingual cancellers were introduced.

    Kuwait became a member of the Universal Postal Union in February 1960. The Government of Kuwait cancelled the Indian stamps and issued its own stamps in its currency of fils and dinars. By 1966 no less than 25 post offices were functioning in the country. Now, Kuwait has one of the most efficiently run postal services in the Gulf.

    In 1867 Tokmak - county town of North Kyrgyzstan - was opened a post office. However, due to the fact that Toqmaq was located away from the main path to Tashkent Faithful (Ташкент–Верный) and was near the marshes, it was decided to move the center of the county to the fortress Pishpek. There on May 14 started a working post office, it was the date and day of birth Bishkek post office.
