Thanks for your kind comments GeoffHa
I am not a big fan of printed album pages or those available on the web either. They do not fit my collecting interests.
Continuing the story:
On 3 May 1951, the GPO issued some of the George VI stamps in new colours. This was done to comply with the Universal Postal Union's regulations for stamps for international use. The UPU regulations state what colours should be used for such stamps. At the same time, the GPO issued new high value definitives. These issues coincided with the issue of stamps commemorating the 1951 Festival of Britain. As a result, the high values became known as "Festival" high values.
The new definitives, including the 2/6, 5/- and 10/- "Festival" high values were overprinted and issued by the British administrations in Eritrea and Tripolitania. These were also issued on 3 May 1951.
The stamps overprinted "B.A. Tripolitania" were only issued for use in Tripolitania. Local stamps had been issued for Cyrenaica. On 24 December 1951, Tripolitania, Cyrenaica and Fazzan became independent and formed the Kingdom of Libya. In 1952, the British Military Administration of Eritrea ended and Eritrea became self-governing.
No stamps were issued for use in Italian Somaliland that had become a United Nations trusteeship in 1949.
