Straits Settlements Malaya

The Straits Settlements were a British colony (from 1826 – 1942) which included a portion of the mainland of the Malay Peninsula and islands off its coast and the island of Labuan off the coast of Borneo.  Originally these settlements consisted of Malacca, Dinding, Penang and Singapore.  Most of these territories now form part of Malaysia, from which Singapore separated in 1965.

The Settlements began issuing their own stamps in 1867.  As with other British colonies, the portraits on the stamps changed as did the British monarchs.  Their last issue was for King George VI.  From 1942 – 1945, the settlements were occupied by the Japanese.  Existing stamps were overprinted with Japanese inscriptions.  At the end of the occupation in 1945, the stamps were overprinted “BMA/MALAYA” (British Military administration) until regular postage stamps were produced for each state.
