Iraq Postal History 1920s to 1940s




The main purpose of this book is to make sense of the airmail fees charged on airmail sent from Iraq to all other countries of the world in the period 1933 to 1946. Extensive tables are set out on 178 pages of this 328 page book. The problem that the authors identified was a total lack of information about many of the air fees and changes to them especially in the period of the Second World War.
