    Makanudo,you "gave birth" to this thread,
    although there is another one over the same
    subject still "not cold".
    Have a look at "General Discussion" and the
    thread "Minerals,Rocks,Jewellery on Stamps"

    Hello all, not posted here for a while so here are two sets of stamps from South West Africa 1989-11-16 and Namibia 1991-01-02

    upload_2017-9-17_5-50-35.png

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The history of Namibia has passed through several distinct stages from being colonised in the late nineteenth century to Namibia's independence on 21 March 1990.

    From 1884, Namibia was a German colony: German South West Africa. After the First World War, the League of Nations mandated South Africa to administer the territory. Following World War II, the League of Nations was dissolved in April 1946 and its successor, the United Nations, instituted a Trusteeship system to bring all of the former German colonies in Africa under UN control. South Africa objected arguing that a majority of the territory's people were content with South African rule.

    Legal argument ensued over the course of the next twenty years until, in October 1966, the UN General Assembly decided to end the mandate, declaring that South Africa had no further right to administer the territory, and that henceforth South West Africa was to come under the direct responsibility of the UN (Resolution 2145 XXI of 27 October 1966)
