Not sure if we have many collectors of these stamps on the forum, but if you haven't seen the 2016 Film, "The Legend of Tarzan" with Margot Robbie in it, go watch that and then come back here! LOL

I will start off with a few of mine from the period.

Belgian Congo stamps are evidence for the hypothesis that the more horrific the government, the better the quality of the stamps.

Rod,

I think AO stands for Afrique Occidentale, French for west Africa

Sorry Rod

Initialism of Afrique orientale (East Africa), used as an overprint on stamps of Belgian Congo in 1918 for use in Belgian occupied German East Africa.
