DECEMBER 9, 1917 – MAY 15, 1948


  How British Mandate is ACTUALLY Collected!

British E.E.F. (British Expeditionary Forces) stamps are the BEGINING of Palestine Mandate stamps.

As a result there is an “overlap” with the World War I issues of the E.E.F. (Egyptian Expeditionary Force).

  1. The Blues (the Lithographed) issues # 1 – 4.*
  2. The Typography (the Typographed) issues # 5 – 15.*
  3. Both are also considered as the 1st of the issues of the British Mandate.*
