Gibraltar

Gibraltar is a British overseas territory situated on the southern point of the Spanish Peninsula.  During World War II it was a very important base for the Royal Navy as it controlled the entrance and exit to the Mediterranean Sea.

The first stamps of Gibraltar were stamps of Bermuda overprinted GIBRALTAR, in 1886.  After 1886, Gibraltar issued its own stamps.  Since then most issues show the monarchs of Great Britain.  Gibraltar’s postal service is run by the Royal Gibraltar Post Office.  It is the only commonwealth country in the world that has Royal in the name of it’s postal agency, an honour given by Queen Elizabeth II in 2005.
