Michel.
Region of the eastern Hadhramaut and Socotra Island.
Tribal principality in the Eastern Aden protectorate, which became part of the People's republic of South Yemen 30th November 1967

12 World scouting Jamboree, Idaho.
The scouting Lily or Fleur de Lis
Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement, explained that the Scouts adopted the fleur-de-lis symbol from its use in the compass rose because it "points in the right direction (and upwards) turning neither to the right nor left, since these lead backward again."

Hi Rod,

I like the scout designs but the others look as though they were designed in a hurry.

SG gives full listing to one set of Mahra stamps of 11 values (Mahra flag) and lists three sets in the appendix:

- Scout Jamboree (4 values)

- President Kennedy (9 values)

- Mexico Olympics (5 values)

When these stamps were produced Mahra was part of the short-lived Protectorate of South Arabia (1963-67).

Hi Nigel,
agreed, I find a lot of these geological proximity issues similar, I have a feeling (unsubstantiated) that there were interests afoot, to secure printing rights around the area 1965 to 1970 ish.
Rockets, Space travel, Paintings etc& etc.
I note some were printed in Turkey, which was surprise, I was thinking perhaps Clive Harold Feigenbaum.

Michel has 161 stamp issues for the Maha Sultanate.
(You gotta love the Germans)

The Stamp Atlas is a great book but on this map it has put Upper Yafa in the wrong country!
