Kenya, Uganda & Tanganyika

United-Kingdom-Flag

 

Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika is the name on British postage stamps made for use in these 3 British colonies between 1935 and 1963. Even after independence, the 3 countries continued to use these stamps and they remained valid until 1977.

East Africa Protectorate was an area which occupied about the same area as the present day Kenya.  In the late 19th Century it fell under British control and in 1920 became a colony of Kenya.

Between 1903 and 1920, postage stamps were issued with the profile of King Edward VII and inscribed “East Africa and Uganda Protectorates”.  The same basic design was used in the following years with the substitution of King George V in 1912.  From 1920, the stamps were inscribed “Kenya and Uganda”.  In 1903, a telegram sheet with a one rupee imprint was issued.  A very unusual item, the stamp was hexagonal with the head of Edward VII in a circle in the centre.  This is a very rare and special collector’s item.
